      • Added support for argus recordings, they will be added to recordings section (see)
      • Added quick "remote filters" inside all media views like in Moving Pictures, "starts with" and "contains" filters (number keys, (, *, #, §, Escape)
      • Hide "Series" and "Movies" from "Videos" section, also "Recordings"
      • Extended search screens to use fast attribute based search (instead of global approach)
    • Updates and fixes for SlimTV / TVE 3:
      • Add support for zapping by channel index or logical number (configurable by user)

    Hello!
    Tested this snapshot and it works pretty good so far. Installation went flawlessly.
    I have a problem with the SlimTV Extended plugin tho. Due to recent changes (zap by index/channel number?) it doesnt work anymore. Is there be an updated plugin version to be expected or is this plugin completely abandoned?

    Logs are attached,
    Thanks! :)

    Hi.
    I don't think so. This plugin was from the era as MP2 did not have stable native TV. But those days are gone since a long time. As we're short on man power and overwhelmed with work I don't believe this will be updated in near future, if ever...
    Aside this MPExtended is dead since ages now. Last "stable" is from 2013 and last beta from 2014...

    I can provide a working version for MPExtended provider soon. But it will only work with channel index, not number (limitation by MPExtended).

    Thanks!
    That would be totally fine!
    Point is that I don't want to do two TV Server configurations (for MP1 and MP2).

    I noticed in process monitor that it's writing 22k per second to dvbsubs.log (claiming to be from MediaPortal DVBSub3.ax version 1.0.1). After 40 mins this file reaches 1mb size.
    I'm not interested in subtitles; is there any way to turn this logging down a bit?

    Hi all,

    as always updated to the newest snapshot and tested it. I found following issues :

    Program Guide focus / Initial channel selection
    Start menu -> Program Guide -> moved up/down to a certain channel and pressed "ok" -> TV turned on but not the selected channel but the channel which was the initial choice when starting the program guide -> have to switch to another channel and then back to get the right channel
    First time that I realized this issue was IMHO the 12-6-2016 snapshot

    Activation of former watched TV channel
    started MP2 -> started TV e.g. channel 2 -> then back to main menu -> started / watched a series -> then back to main screen/menu and started TV again -> nothing happens / same issue when starting program guide and selecting the formerly watched channel (e.g. channel 2), also nothing happens -> switching /selecting another channel than the formerly watched works without problems
    This issue is recurring and permanent

    Audio / video sync
    Audio sync still doesn't work properly, no matter turning frame rate change on or off. After a while, sometimes 5 minutes, sometimes 50 mins audio video starts not being syncron anymore. Happens more often when watching TV compared to series / movies.

    The rest works pretty fine for me, thanks a lot for the continous improvement and development!

    Thorsten

    +1, having the same issue. Restarting the client fixes it, so i guess it's a client thing...
    Using Titanium Extended btw.
    I had a AV sync problem when using RefreshRateChanger I think my TV didn't pick up the correct frequency). Try disabling RefreshRateChanger (Just delete/move the folder from MP2-Client\Plugins).

    Hi all,

    Has anyone tested this snapshot with tvwishlist 1.4.5 - should work in principle but on the server side the plug doesn't remember any settings I configure (actually it remembers my email settings but no "wishes" or EPG config), and on the client side it just prevents the client from loading.

    Posted here also but may be snapshot related
