DTV - New (minor) Release 1.2
Rolf Hakenes writes:
I am proud to announce the third public release of DTV. This
(minor) release is primarly intended to improve the
configuration capabilities of DTV. A new method for
key-definitions, user-definable menus and Dcl-style options
should enable anyone, who is able to understand and write some
Tcl stuff, to configure dtv to exactly his own needs. Of course
some bugs have been removed also. Finally I dropped support for
DVB driver versions prior to CVS (24/09/01). The code does only
works with the new tuning API. At last I included the newest
Astra channel settings of 1st, October.
The main additonal features of the third publically released version 1.2 are:
Fully-configurable user-interface. Each input event can
trigger arbitrary actions on the output devices in any state
of them. These actions can as well be Dcl commands or
User definable menus (dynamically, can be used to modify
the menus of a running dtv via TCP link. Targeted applications
are E-Mail notification and reading, answering machine control
(together with vbox or mgetty))
Completely revised option handling (look into
variables.dcl). Event tracing capability (perform some action
if something like channel switching happens to the output
State and EPG save/restore on program exit/entry.
Extended EPG facilities. Ability to scroll around in EPG data.
LastVisitedChannel support (by using the '0' channel number)
Preliminary Record/Playback capability. If you would like
to use this, you would have to get the stream from
/dev/ost/dvrx and feed it back via 'ntuxplayer'. Better
support will follow in the next (major) release.
Preliminary AC3 capability. If you would like to use this,
you would have to get the stream from /dev/ost/dvrx and feed
it into your processor.
fixed bug, that causes dtv to crash on missing remote control
name for LIRCD translation-tables.
fixed: Diseqc bug (Satellite object has not been copied)
fixed: Vtx-Bug (wrong PIDs selected, if AC3 available)
The release is under Gnu GPL, the project is hosted by SourceForge.Net with
the Name hesdvb. The tarball of DTV can be downloaded from:
