    4.1.0 available (4th March)

    You can download 4.1.0.180302 from http://nextpvr.com/NPVRSetup_4_1_0_180302.exe

    Please post any support issues in the support forum. Support questions posted in this thread will be deleted.

    A key thing to not with this release is that it is no longer compatible with XP. The application is now using .NET 4.6. It should prompt to download and install this if you do not have it.

    Changes:
    - No longer compatible with XP. Now using VS2017 and .NET 4.6.
    - fixed issue where playback would freeze if you tried to resume after being paused and you'd paused longer than the buffer.
    - fixed an issue where OSD graphics wouldn't update with EVR video renderer while video is paused.
    - fixed issue with recording shows that started with a complete windows reserved like "con".
    - fixed issue with Microsoft DTV-DVD Audio Decoder with AAC which could cause crash.
    - fixed a bug with downloading m3u8 keys from relative web paths
    - added support for handling .ts files that lose 188 byte alignment mid file.
    - fixed minor grid align issue in modern web app tv guide.
    - improved the speed when deleting large number of channels
    - improved the speed when saving large number of channels
    - added a tickbox to control whether IPTV VOD channels and groups are sent to Kodi. (on Settings->Clients screen)
    - fixed bug where re-imported recordings could have wrong date/time
    - fixed an issue with playing back ts files that include a clock wrap-around
    - now using timing.info in new reader if file is available
    - improved detection of .ts file playback duration (when timing.info not available)
    - fixed issue where HDHR Prime could generate broken recording with incorrect PAT at beginning of file.
    - fixed an issue where LAV video decoder could show partial MPEG2 frames when playback starts before it gets an I-Frame
    - fixed issue where 'unmute' in context menu was not working.
    - increased timeout when downloading xmltv guide over http, since some IPTV providers are pretty slow at providing this
    - fixed a bug that could cause NRecord.exe to crash if NDigitalHost.exe had crashed.
    - fixed minor memory leak with IPTV or CableCard devices.
    - fixed issue where sometimes OnDemand playback would report duration of zero, and user wouldn't be able to skip
    - added an option to display just the channel name in the left column of the TV guide (see Settings->Misc2), since many IPTV users have long channel names, and no interest in the channel numbers. The original guide style would often show the name truncated to something unidentiable from the other channels around it.
    - added ProcAmp support for analog devices, for those that need to tweak contrast/brightness etc.
    - now remembers and auto selects the last caption/subtitle option, for those users that prefer to leave captions enabled all the time
    - now possible to change font used for teletext by editing <TeletextFontName> in config.xml
    - added a new <If> directive for skins, to accommodate more complex requests I was getting from users
    - added a couple more guide channel header styles, and now dynamically sizing the main guide to accommodate header styles that use less space
    - added a setting to remember the TV Guide last channel selection
    - further improvements for compatibility with quirks of some IPTV providers

    Oh No! This means my Vista Media Play will not be supported. I run NPVR on a Windows 10 Desktop by for playing in my Living Room I use a HTPC by ASRock that runs Vista. Any suggestions?

    Will .net 4.5 work

    Vista should work fine, as long as you've got SP2 installed. You can download .NET 4.6 for Vista SP2.

    It's only XP support that has been dropped. XP was released 17 years ago, and since then there has been several new versions of Windows. I know there is still a small number of users with it, but most have upgraded over that time. These users are free to continue to use 4.0.x or earlier if they need more time before they upgrade to the latest NextPVR release.

    Not sure if I'm blind but I cannot find the tickbox under Misc2 screen to group VOD unless you are referring to Genre Coloring Grouping.

    - added a tickbox to control whether IPTV VOD channels and groups are sent to Kodi. (on Settings->Misc2 screen)

    Thanks

    Sorry - it's on the Settings->Clients screen ("Send VOD Groups"). I've updated the release notes to correct this.

    Great thank you for the fast reply and program updates. I will update the HTPC today.

    I think DirectTVNow uses proprietary streaming encryption.

    Can you watch recordings on a older version like 3.9.2 that are being recorded on 4.1.0 with the 3.9.2 as a client?

    Thanks
    Kyle
