    Just updated and everything seems to work. Well done, good work! (y)

    However there's a thing I've already reported some time ago. Some items only show up after I move the cursor of my remote.
    Example: My "basic screen" just shows date and time. When starting mp it's mostly showing only the time.
    Date will come after I move the cursor in either direction (I start mp rightaway into tv guide).
    Maybe someone can acknowledge?!

    Cheers,

    Rico

    I had this "issue" in older Version too, but not with this one. Sebimuxx added a delay to show information's on the second screen and since then here is everything fine. May be your PC is a bit slower than mine and the delay still is to less...

    On the other side - TVGuide is taking much performance of mpd++. This could also be a problem...
    Epg- part of mpdisplay will be done for next version regarding performance.

    Regarding the epg: I've thrown away everything related with it (on mpd side).
    And the issue is not only on startup but also when changing to other screens.

    I know there is still an issue with some screens, e.g. EPG, MovingPictures, and some others where the screen updates or displays only after selecting an item. This is different from the issue on the playing screens which did not initialize correctly when displayed the first time. I will try to fix this in the next release, but currently have no idea what the cause is. But I promise to try hard...

    Just had an mpd crash when deleting a TV recording while another recording was being made.
    Could someone please try to reproduce?

    Two questions: Is there any error message in the log? If yes, please post. Do you mean you deleted an actual recording or did you delete a schedule to record? In the latter case I could imagine a potential interference with a running recording in MPD because in this case the list of scheduled recordings is refreshed.

    I myself did not experience any crash when starting a recording, scheduling a recording, or delting a recording in the last weeks. But I will make some additional tests.
