    Be aware that some files of the skin must be updated to be 1.2.0A compatible.

    We switched to an short release cycle in MP1.
    Right now we are working on an 1.1.2 hotfix which will adress the memory leak some users encountered in 1.1.1.

    For the 1.2.0 tree, we aim to release a new version every 2 months until we get to the final.
    After that we focus on 1.2.x versions fixing issues we missed. Since the amount of changes/fixes is very small, these are also rolled out quickly.

    Already reported to another thread, but since this occured when updated to 1.2 alpha...

    I have Hauppauge WinTV Nova T 500 (PCI) and WinTV CI (USB). The CI-module stopped working after update. Haven't been able to watch any paytv channel after that... Major disappointment. :(

    Otherwise everything seems a bit better once again.

    Hello, just updated to 1.2 alpha based on all the positive responses here. I can only applaude, it works perfectly, smoother, faster and seems to be rock stable. I have a multiseat setup with two FireDTVs using CAMs for decryption. No problems thus far! Good work!!!

    Seriously - when do you guys ever sleep?

    Amazing quantity (AND quality) of work. I've bought 'proper' commercial software without this level of maintenance!

    Sleep? What is that? I have a vague recollection. :p

    Seriously I'm not sure what happened but the energy in the Team at the moment is at an all time high!

    It could be because MP 1.1.0 was so successful, and we ironed out a lot of issues that gave use a base to work from. It could be we had to wait so long in feature freeze we were dying for some new development. It could be all the new team members and energy, which has been fantastic. Or, it could just be that we seem to be getting a LOT more cheers from our users these days.

    I gotta tell you that is pretty inspiring! You may not be the best looking cheerleaders I have ever seen :p, but you sure make up for it in passion and energy.

    So many thanks to you all! Keep it up!

    :D

    Look great so far, thanks to you all for the effort and hard work your putting in :)

    I have found a couple of problems, fast forward/rewind no longer shows the x2 x4 etc bar and the screen doesn't update during either operation so its a bit of a guess as to when to hit play again (I see this in MP-TV Series and Moving Pictures). The other thing, trailers don't play anymore :(

    I will send a bug report when I can figure out how to do it lol
