    3.6.6 available (5th Dec)

    You can download 3.6.6 from http://www.nextpvr.com/NPVRSetup_3_6_6.exe

    Please post any support issues in the support forum.

    From the change log:
    - improved Ceton scanning and tuning
    - closed captions now supported with all MPEG2 decoders. Previously it'd only work with select decoders like the Mainconcept one.
    - added a message on the screen when in TV Viewer mode, so we don't get users saying "I only get a black screen, and no menus".
    - now giving better user notifications of Schedules Direct account status, like expiry date, and status messages when the system is offline.
    - added ability to do a free text search in the Search screen.
    - added ability to schedule keyword recording (without having to manually type Advanced Rules). See top bar in TV Guide or Recordings
    - fixed an issue with paths with spaces when using /transcode url
    - fixed issue with FM radio
    - fixed an issue with generic diseqc support
    - fixed an issue with large DVB-S xml service descriptions that could lead to a crash while scanning
    - added manual scan for DVB-T/DVB-C, allow you to specify tuning paramaters like frequency etc.
    - added support for manually specifying Ceton QAM channels
    - installer now signed
    - installer will try to stop the software automatically in the case of an upgrade
    - minor improvements to the Schedules Direct channel setup controls
    - added support for 'ms_progid' unique id in xmltv files
    - updates to network API, to enable new features required in the latest Kodi builds
    - added support for running PostStartup.bat
    - fixed a bug where recording service could crash after deleting a capture source (if you had a recording set of a capture source that no longer exists)
    - now lets user know if they're in a channel group with no channels (and will auto switch back to 'All Channels').
    - 'F9' shortcut key to main menu now also works in live tv and video playback
    - added mouse controls during live tv / video playback. These only show if you move the mouse.
    - minor tweaks to keyword recording, to allow users to specify percent characters in the keyword, giving them more control over how the match is done (SQL "like" clause)
    - uninstalling now correctly removing NPVR Recording Service
    - changes to natively support DVB-T EPG in New Zealand.
    - fixed a crash that could happen with non-standard language audio descriptor (seen on a Swiss channel)
    - no longer marking Schedules Direct SH* shows as 'new'
    - added a button on the first settings page to zip the log files. After this it copies the zip file location to the clipboard, and options Windows Explorer with the file selected
    - fixed bug where auto reloading comskip edl file was not working
    - fixed bug where live tv directory could be deleted
    - minor improvements to bulkmap automapping with xmltv
    - recordings screen now showing failure message on pending recordings too, since it can sometimes contain useful information (like rescheduled due to conflict)
    - resolved an issue with DVB EPG where overnight EPG updates could lead to mostly empty EPG when using 'out of process' host, but manual EPG update would work fine
    - slight changes to when the digital signal strength is reported, to hopefully give better signal information in the logs
    - fixed issue that could lead to duplicate recordings
    - fixed channel 'unmerge'
    - added support for Hauppauge HDPVR60
    - fixed issue where a couple of italian users had ended up with a recording service that wouldn't start due to regional date format.
    - added support for ATSC HEVC channels, like those currently being trialled in Korea.
    - added support for negative padding, up to 5 minutes, to help with conflicts where show schedules have slight overlaps
    - added support for EPG-Based timeshifting via the "/live?channel=" streaming method, as used by the kodi addon etc.
    - added better a reporting of a couple of Schedules Direct messages that can be returned in certain circumstances
    - added logic to remember the recurring recording that was associated with a deleted pending recording. When you delete a recurring recording, it'll delete the history of those deleted pending recordings.
    - added support ATSC style ETT show descriptions
    - 'delete' key can now be used in recordings to delete
    - fixed issue where RecurrenceOID wasn't being set on the ScheduledRecording object returned when scheduling a recurring recording
    - significant changes to the metadata works, and new a API that can now be used by NEWA etc for finding artwork (and demand loading etc), caching etc.
    - now downloading a few additional artwork items, including landscape and logo. These aren't directly used in NextPVR at this stage, but will be used by clients like Emby.
    - new Artwork settings screen.
    - added FanArt.tv support for artwork
    - metadata screens are off by default in Recordings, but can be enabled.
    - now using built in Windows API for mounting .iso files on Win8 and above
    - fixed issue where directory wouldn't be deleted after deleting last recording
    - improvements for European styles of artwork through Schedules Direct
    - 'Find All' on recurring keyword recordings will now list all matches
    - adds support for new Schedules Direct service, which will auto extend sports recordings if the event is not yet finish. This is off by default, but can be enable din the Settings->Recording screen. It'll probably be enabled by default in future releases.
    - added special logic for duplicate handling of Schedules Direct 'Special' genre.
    - updated NEWA

    Sub,

    Just curious,
    in 366, did you get a chance to look at (didn't see in changelog):

    1. why all files are not being deleted from LiveTV buffer?
    2. the glitchiness introduced in pause/resume/skip in client by 357's NPVRTSReader2.ax? I am currently using the file from 348.
    3. some sort of notification that a channel is protected in the guide?

    thanks

    Sorry, I just worked on those things shown in the change log. If you want to post in the support forum about any problems, I can take a look.

    Yahoo ! Negative padding

    I noticed that Stop NPVR no longer pop the "Stopped ..." window.
    Start NPVR pop "Started ..."

    Also after the install, NTray is not running, Stop, Started bring it back

    your changelog neglects that very last change to process the unique_id's when the 'special' genre tag is included.

    Quick note: I found after the upgrade my clients would not connect to the Server or NEWA did not work even after restarting the NPVR services but a reboot fixed all that everything works as expected.

    I am new to NextPVR - when there is an upgrade do I need to uninstall the old program or just run the upgrade?

    Also, what is the difference between NextPVR and Plex?

    Just run the installer. It'll stop any already NextPVR install, and update the bits, then restart it.

    I'm not sure what you want to know there. They're two entirely different apps.

    You answered both my questions, thanks
