    There have been several long-running threads on the forum for testing various improvements to the TV functionality of MP1. We have decided that it's time to bring most of that work together and produce a version of MP 1.15 with all the TV 'work in progress' updates merged into it. The aim is to get these updates into the next version of MP1, but we need your help to test these first...

    The updates included are:

    • Other RTSP-related improvements and updates.
    • Adding (limited) support to TsReader for DTS and LPCM audio playback in .ts files, and also support for 192 byte TS packets, to improve MP 'Video' player file compatibility.
    See below for installer files.

    The GitHub (source code) branch is here - https://github.com/MediaPortal/MediaPortal-1/tree/EXP_DS_TV_HEVC_2

    @Owlsroost could you please provide standalone directshow filters to test with MP2? I think the changes affect TsReader and TsWriter?

    It seems that we can run into .ax not overwrited when using installer (even tvservice stopped) this is a bug in NSIS installer, no clue why it failed really, so you can/need remove/move *.ax (TsReader.ax etc.) from folder :

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal TV Server

    And run again the installer :)

    Tested this version and works perfect (besides the installer problems with *.ax files) (y)
    I´d really like to see this in the upcoming 1.16 pre release ;)

    using this rework since the beginning, for me it work very fine, the last update of Live555 do zapping better (fast) for me.
    Combined with Seb MadVR rework but set for use with EVR instead of MadVR for TV, not tested alone :whistle:

    About TSReader overwritte issue :
    maybe a way : https://nsis-dev.github.io/NSIS-Forums/html/t-268664.html
    maybe update NSIS to V3 ( released 1 month ago ) / update to 2.51 instead of 2.46 (released ind 2009 ) (tested but not work, due to windows 8.1 / 10 management )

    Installed yesterday since I already used the "Live TV rate matching" before and installation went fine without deleting any .ax files. Made a short TV test and had small problems: sometimes on certain HD-channels (Tagesschau24) I had pixelation on start of the stream and in between, maybe around every 30 seconds or so (only short pxielation, maybe 1 second or less). With the standard version of TSReader no problems at all with pixelation. Is this a known issue? If not, I'll try to catch some clean logs this evening...
