    3.5.7 available (30th August)

    You can download 3.5.7 from http://www.nextpvr.com/NPVRSetup_3_5_7.exe

    If you're upgrading from a previous release, remember to make sure you stop NextPVR before running the upgrade, using the 'Stop NPVR Server' shortcut (or kill NTray.exe and stop the 'NPVR Recording Service' service).

    Please post any support issues in the support forum.

    - added Ceton tuner support
    - changes to the default menu and animations.
    - app now tells user if they're missing decoders they require
    - added better handling of initial default recording directory for new installs
    - added a 'new' indicator in TV Guide grid. Its off by default, because it gets a bit annoying in countries where this info isn't known and everything is treated as 'new'. Enable on the Settings->Misc2 screen.
    - updated SRT subtitle renderer to support subtitles that specify a font color
    - fixed issue some users where having with multi-record on HDHR Prime devices.
    - improved support for HEVC/H.265 channels
    - incomplete meta screens removed from Recordings. There didn't seem to much interest in this feature.
    - fixed problem Schedules Direct lineup dropdown would have problems with aero disabled
    - fixed issue with multi-HDPVR, which was introduced in 3.4.8
    - fixed a couple of Bulk Map issues
    - fixed an analog tuner identificantion problem that could occur in setups with mixed combinations of supported analog tuners
    - now using UTC for recording list LastUpdated, which fixes a bug with Kodi not reloading the recording list
    - fixed bug where skipping in live tv would sometimes be ignored when using client PC.
    - minor improvements to client behaviour when server not present. There is no way for it to always gracefully handle all situations without a major rewrite, but these changes will help some scenarios.
    - fixed issue with IPTV channels not running specified executable
    - reduce the amount of logging in nrecord.log related to client/server streaming
    - 'use S01E01 file naming if possible' will now perform some additional checks to stop it using obviously incorrect season/episode numbers
    - can now do season/episode file naming with an season of 0, as this is sometimes used by multi part shows.
    - added a link on the Settings->Decoders screen, to take you to an informational page on the NextPVR website (page still a work-in-progress).
    - now possible to configure tuning parameters of Freesat EPG transponder using <FreesatEPGTuning> in config.xml
    - added a new '-now' option to NScriptHelper, to list what active devices are doing right now.
    - scheduler will now prefer an exact start time for a scheduling a timeslot recording. If no exact match can be found, then it falls back to looking for other start times in the timeslot.
    - added new 'Look for alternate airings on unresolved conflict' on Settings->Recordings. Enabled by default.
    - fixed issue where artwork from thetvdb was not found if title was in non-english language
    - fixed a problem where not all artwork sources where being checked in the TV Guide for NMT/MVP
    - 'Find All' on a conflict (which has unique id), will now filter the list of airings to only those matching the unique id (ie, showing other airings of that exact show).
    - fixed issue where deleting a recurring recording could result in a database error in the logs, and recording left behind.
    - fixed issue with artwork from themoviedb relating to foreign language titles
    - fixed an issue where digital recorder could have a few broken PAT entries at the beginning of a recording
    - updated all DVB-S tuning files
    - updated NEWA

    Does the new support for Ceton cards means that we don't have to use SageDCT anymore?

    Also, I had some issues with the LAV Video Decoder freezing while watching live TV. Will these be resolved in this version, or is that a separate matter?

    Correct. NextPVR now includes support for Ceton devices. You do not need to use SageDCT or Network Recorder for using your Ceton device with NextPVR.

    The LAV video decoder doesn't play nicely with the Microsoft demultiplexer, which NextPVR uses. It's unlikely anything has changed on that front. We recommend using other video decoders.

    New to NextPVR and just tried updating. Getting "Error opening file for writing: C:\Program Files\NPVR\NShared.dll." I made sure to close the NextPVR app and make sure the NPVR Recording Service is stopped. Using NextPVR with an HDHomeRun and Kodi.

    You also need to exit Ntray.exe or stop NPVR Service from the start menu.

    That's the one I was missing. All updated now, thank you.

    Can you elaborate? I just looked and I am currently using the LAV decoders (which is likely causing some of my issues). Which decoders do you recommend?

    H.264 we recommend either the Microsoft DTV-DVD Video Decoder, or the ArcSoft Video Decoder.

    MPEG-2 is a little more tricky because there isn't great free options where I can provide download links. If you're using Win7, go with the 'Microsoft DTV-DVD Video Decoder' for MPEG-2. If you're using a later version of Windows, then the Microsoft decoder isn't available. There is lots of decoders that work well, like those from Cyberlink, Intervideo, MainConcept etc. One of these will often be included with the software that came with your TV card, which is a good way to get them. Otherwise you can look into codec packs like the SAF codec pack.

    For all audio formats, the LAV Audio decoder is a good options.

    Tried NextPVR v3.4.8 and now this one v3.5.7 on Win 8.1 x64 with HDHR4-2DT. Installed correctly, HD HomeRun software works fine, but NextPVR does not find any channels when scanning. Have disabled the Windows/MacFee Firewall, and done a fresh install (uninstalled NPVR and restarted before installing new version). IS it just that NPVR does not support HDHR4 models ?

    It should work with it. I haven't encountered an HDHR it hasn't worked with.

    Head over to the Support subforum and post your npvr.log after a scan and I'll take a look.

    I haven't tried that specific model, but I have successfully used their previous DVB-T HDHR.
