    Oops, I was sure that I had upgraded my client to 1.12 (I almost always upgrade the clients when new software comes along.
    Doing an upgrade now, I'll post back my comments

    Yep :)
    Right now i can't reproduce with the Live555 TsReader, so that's good :)
    I can't reproduce it with merged branch too (DVB sub enable or not) so will do more testing but now i would say that it's works pretty good :)

    Just upgraded, working ;-) . Can see when I change TV channels the screen goes black (as before), then I get a glimt of the previous channel before I get the one I have tuned to. The chanel changing time seems to be the same as before (2-3 sec.) This isn't a problem for me at all. Just wanted to mention it.

    Great :)

    Yes, this was also reported in internal testing. As far as we could see, that behaviour was already existing before the update was applied.
    Can you confirm that you saw this before applying the update, or do you think it is new behaviour?

    The performance improvements are related to simplification/reduction of the RTSP requests sent to the server. Savings are probably 200 ms at most, depending on network speed/latency. This may be most obvious at start of live TV or recording playback, and during skipping/seeking.

    This may have happened sometimes before, but now it seems to be always.

    @Sebastiii
    From the "RecordedTV_not_working_on_resume.zip" TsReader log...
    I think the problem is here:
    For some reason the RTSP PLAY command seems to have timed out. This means no response was received from the server within 500 ms. It looks like the server received the command but it took quite a long time to complete the seek:
    In the working log file the seeking was much faster:
    Maybe we have to think about increasing the 500 ms command timeout...

    @mm1352000 thanks for looking those log, yep maybe it could be nice idea to increase the timeout :)

    For now I prefer to keep testing with the current time-out (500 ms). I would have expected the current value would be more than necessary (even excessive) for RTSP on a local network. Maybe the problem only happens when the HDD needs to spin up??? Anyway, please let me know if you notice problems again, and how often it happens. If it happens frequently then we will need to increase the value. Log files will be required to decide how much to increase it.

    Hi mm1352000!
    Thank you for improving analog FM support in MP!
    Tried your new files (only analog FM radio).
    My tv card is a Pinnacle 3010ix (Philips SAA7162) with software encoder (ATI) on Win10.
    First channel takes 11-12 secs.
    After first channel, channel switching takes 6-7 secs.
    Dvb-t and dvb-s radio take 2-3 secs.
    Have to say that now FM Radio is very precise, there are no glitches or imperfections in channel change.
    I think you weren't looking for speed.
    Tell me if you want logs.
    Thank you,
    sdf
