What is new
v1.3 (12.11.2006) Screenshots/New features
BDA support (Limited DISEQC support* because of BDA restrictions!)
Timeshift (ram + disk cache)
Network Scan (No need to update INI files anymore! New tp lists are gathered from the stream)
New quick favourites system (works on chlist general tab, faster access to favourites)
MDAPI plugin interface is now more compatible. (now it can detect Provider IDs, no need to use "Auto PMT" option on plugins and OnExit() bug fixed)
LAN streaming added (Options->Preferences->LAN Streaming)
Changes in record manager to prevent excessive cpu usage on slow disks (No high CPU usage during MPG record anymore !)
Aspect Ratio options improved (supports embedded AR modes)
Cropping (Vertical/Horizontal zoom) added
"Return to default options" menu item added (in main menu->File)
TS-record improved. Now possible to record ECM, EMM, Teletext and all audio pids.
Now DD can load the plugins from \plugins root folder and possible to use subfolders inside \pipxx (e.g. \plugins\pip00\mdttx\mdteletext.dll)
Some interface customizations for DVB-T and C
Performs better during channel changes using keyboard and RC.
Snapshots are now saved in JPG format instead of BMP.
Sleep timer added (Main menu->File->Sleep Timer)
Displays chroma format in status bar (4:2:0/4:2:2/4:4:0)
New option to report channel frequencies in short format (just press CTRL + ALT + C keys on any channel) e.g. "13.0°E 11766,V,27500 RAI1 (RAI) 4:2:0"
Module: Momotte's DVBEPG module update for latest DD included !
Module: X05's New module, CHLTools, capable to assign SID numbers as Ch.Numbers in remote list and capable to auto assign EPG/LCN channel numbers to remote list (this might be quite handy if you are following the schedules published by provider!) and CHL optimization features.
Module: Signal Display included (to adjust your dish, signal levels are indicated by voice!)
Module: Level log included (stores signal levels in a file with periodic samples)
BDA DVB-S devices : It needs device specific codes for Diseqc an CI support since BDA specification doesnt support diseqc and CI. Some of device specific diseqc are implemented and some might be implemented in next versions. If you have any information on how to implement Diseqc support on your BDA device , please let me know. I will try to implement necessary code in DD.
There is a new popup menu item "Add to Quick Favorites" in channel list right-click menu.
It is possible to change Timeshift buffer size and enable/disable it in options/prefences/timeshift.
Now one click channel change possible on remote tab. You should enable Drag&Drop using right click menu to re-order channels.
Channel list file format changed (no need to worry for your customized channel list, if there is already a old version CHL, DD takes a backup of old CHL and upgrades it to new format itself)
If you see duplicated items in the plugins menu, make sure you don't have the same plugins in \plugins root and \pipXX folders.
There will be experimental BDA changes in this version and following versions, so your device might not work with an update, in that case please report.
Now CoreAVC H.264 can work on DD again.
