    What's the problem with 4TR, slow zapping??

    The 1.6.0.x release restarts the player on channel change to avoid the RTSP issues, so this will stay slow with every tsreader.
    But this hack is removed in the 1.6.1 beta releases, because there is some progress in fixing the issue.

    The extra delay that Ray was getting was due to the TsReader mod - I could see that from the log. The 4TR client/server behaves differently to MP client/server.

    Hi Ray,

    It looks like the latest version is working how it should :)

    The zapping delay is a mixture of how 4TR is handling the zapping (as glenn1990 points out, it's completely rebuilding the graph on a channel change when using RTSP - which is the most reliable but slowest thing to do), and how long it takes TsReader.ax to find the first GOP boundary after the stream data start to arrive - which depends on how the stream is encoded and where it 'jumps in' relative to the GOP structure, amongst other things.

    Thanks for the testing.

    Tony

    I have tested the 0.4.7.1a binary, and it is working fine with 1.2.2 + some other fixes. I didn't do any comparisons, but all seems fine so far.

    These fixes are now approved and merged to the Release_1.2.X and master GIT branches. They will be in the next release (1.2.3).

    Should we now close this thread?

    Just wanted to say that I've been testing 0.4.7.1a for a while, and it doesn't seem to break anything. Hoping that future updates will include work from your noStopMod-thread..
