    Video Library File Names Truncated since 4.1.1 upgrade

    I upgraded from 3.9.2 to 4.1.1 (I skipped the releases 4.0.4 to and 4.1.0 as I had problems with them) on two machines one running W7 (a dedicated PVR) and the other running W10. Same problem with both machines.
    I have attached a jpg of the Video Screen showing my problem.Name:  NPVR.jpg

    I have spent a little time looking at this and it appears to be caused by a file name longer than the dialogue box with a space in the name.

    The file names in the jpg example is "American Pickers 20150720_21242326.mpg" it shows as "American..."
    If I edit the filename and remove the space "American_Pickers_20150720_21242326.mpg" it shows as "American Pickers_20150720_2124..."

    I like this view in Video and I do not want to edit the filenames of several thousand unwatched video files. This has not occurred until I installed version 4.1.1 (the best version of NPVR I have used)
    I am now an old bloke, I have used this software since GBPVR09608 in 2006 and love it. I don't use any add-ons and generally try to "Keep IT Simple"

    Thanks Sub,
    Unfortunately the patch didn't help.
    I restored a recent system Image with 3.9.2 to my W7 dedicated PVR machine (only software NPVR needs) and progressively applied the updates carefully checking each one.
    The issue appears when upgrading to 4.1.1
    I also noticed the three dots appearing after long channel names in the TV Guide, previously they were just cut off. While this is not an issue in the TV Guide it was not like this until 4.1.1
    Hope my observations help!Name:  NPVR TV Guide.jpg

    Mildly similar, the 4:3 screen I'm using with NPVR it did the same ... in the channel list, but not on the TV PVR machine, that was fine, but I'm noticing the icons are rather tight on both (almost look like they're overlapping). Also on the 4:3, set it to 60 mins for listing and it still chopped the channel names and even the date at the top (with the new NUtility you provided). I would have figured it was a skin issue with a limit on pixel width.

    Any chance to separate the "season, info" after the name of the show onto a separate line? Both the Info and the text at the bottom can be massively long (as seen on the 16:9 TV PVR). "Paw Patrols" today had a line so long, it overwrote the start time at the bottom and when viewed in the popup window, it was a word and a half past the edge of it.

    I don't even have a 4:3 monitor any more, so can't easily check this. Can you post a screenshot.

    You can simulate a 4:3 monitor with Remote Desktop Connection
