Thank you Adam and team. TVH is great software, I have been using it since 3.2 and the betas in between. Your work is greatly appreciated, I will send a donation asap.

And even better is that hopefully Frodo 12.2 brings fixes for skipping in the Timeshift buffer :D

Hi Adam,

great to see heavy development action ! TVH is a great piece of software !

Discovered that there changed something 'cause couldn't update any longer from launchpad repository Tongue ..

First view shows a lot of changes - I really like the "status" and the better segmentation of the web frontends functions Smile ..

Unfortunately channel switching times seem to have increased (especially for HD-Channels from about 1 second to about 3-4 secs)

Some questions:

1. What will "Conf->Recording->Skip commerical" invoke ? I don't have any stuff like comskip installed .. Why is it activated by default ?

2. See "Conf->Recording->Timeshift" . Is it already full functional with XBMC ? [Btw good to see that it could be turned off and user could choose file location and buffer size Cool]
What will change if "On Demand" is activated ?

This detects audio-/videochanges - i.e. DD 2.0 <-> DD 5.1 or 4:3 <-> 16:9 - on the fly (whilest recording) and set a chaptermark into the file. The changes will usually happen if there is a commercial break and this works indeed awesome Wink - but only on mkv.

Only for providers that support this ?

Edit:

From an older git version i'm running.
Quote:Skip commercials
If checked, commercials will be dropped from the recordings. At the moment, commercial detection only works for the swedish channel TV4.

No, only for providers that change their video-/audioproperties when a combreak is happened. In Europe usually all Wink.

I completely forgot that option was in the ui. Please ignore it, it has no relation to the mkv chapters and only has an effect on one channel on the world. One day it might do more, but not yet.

Sorry, but this works perfect for me especially for the german private channels (RTL, VOX, PRO7, ...) and Sky too. I cut my recordings with VideoRedo and all chaptermarks are placed nearly correct and are a great help to find the combreaks for cutting them out...

Hi,


as expected, tvheadend 3.4 works really fine Love

But I have no idea what kind of signal strength / signal quality tvheadend monitors, but it's definitely not the strength of the transponders or something else. Today I messed around with my satellite dish - and whatever position I chose I got nearly the same signal strength shown in "Status" (about 60%-64%) - completely different to what my standalone satellite receiver told me (it differentiates signal quality and signal strength) ..

And though every channel has superb quality measured by that satellite receiver (and of course proven by my eyes Big Grin) tvheadend tells me that about 70 % of my muxes have a "quality" below 30 % (red bars) .. ?!?

Any chance to get a feature like satellite receivers have which show Signal strength and Signal Quality of a chosen transponder ? Very helpful when adjusting the dish (a sound indicating quality would be helpful too)...

PS: @_BJ1 - (commerical skip feature) will I have any advantage of that marks when watching the stuff from inside xbmc (step forward i.e.) ? Btw how do you cut h264 streams - I didn't find any video cutter (either for windows nor for linux) that would handle that streams without getting audio sync problems (i.e. with Avidemux audio loses sync to video; same with Freemake Video converter) ..

Signal quality depends on:

1. Driver/firmware implementation of your tv-card. Some drivers doesn't show any informations.
2. Quality of your tuners (pc-based cards are much not as good as stb's)

I cut my h264-streams with VideoReDo TVSuite ( http://www.videoredo.com/en/index.htm ), but you must paid for. Inside XBMC You can skip forward/back (next/previous chapter) on a file with chaptermarks within.
