    This Plugin is made to overtake the lack of direct show video settings in Tvserver for hauppauge PVR card (tested with Colossus 2 and Pvr HD2 usb, but it could work with any pvr card)For each timeshift starting it setups :

    VideoProcAmp_Brightness
    VideoProcAmp_Contrast
    VideoProcAmp_Hue
    VideoProcAmp_Saturation
    VideoProcAmp_Sharpness

    following a config file you provide.

    Instructions:

    Stop Tvserver service
    copy the dsvideocontrol-MPs-plugin.dll (in the attached .zip) to the tvserver plugin folder
    Start Tvserver service

    download webcameraconfig.exe from SuslikV/cfg-cam

    create a folder (eg: c:\webcameraconfig)
    put webcameraconfig.exe in the last created folder

    start a tv channel managed with pvr card

    from a command window, run "webcameraconfig.exe --savedev"
    it should create a cam_set.cfg file with your current configuration

    open tvserver configuration app

    activate the plugin
    go to the plugin setup window

    write in the text box (or use the "..." button to browse to ) the path to webcameraconfig.exe (in this example c:\webcameraconfig)

    then go to another plugin setting window (just to be sure that your path has been saved)

    close tvserver configuration tool

    since now each time the timeshift starts (it happens also for a channel change) the cam_set.cfg is applied

    you can play with values to find the best fit for you.
    open the cam_set.cfg with notepad,change values, save the file.
    on the next timeshift starting event you will get new video settings.


    Any comment or suggestion is more than welcome!

    keep in mind I'm not a professional programmer and this is my second MP plugin so the code could be not perfect :)

    Hi CyberSimian, I have concluded the same thing. Disabled "Show last active module when resuming" and go to TV after starting up in the Home screen. Would be nice if it could start on TV (if that's where MP was when put to sleep), just like my older Panasonic PVR. But this workaround is reasonable. I will add that sometimes, even...

Do this for all the plugins you would...
