PRERELEASE README

Please note: Prerelease TSReader install programs are not digitally signed unlike release versions. You will likely see a warning message from your web browser when you try to install these versions.
Version 2.8, build 55a:
  • All: Fixed a crash with certain DVB T2-MI streams
  • All: Fixed an issue with browsing for the PotPlayer and FFPlay locations
  • All: Added support for the TBS 6504 quad-tuner card
  • All: Added the loopback adapter (127.0.0.1) to the network interface list in the UDP/RTP and HRTP multicast source modules
  • All: Added support for DVB-S2 ISI to all TBS compatible source modules
  • All: Added support for DVB-T2 PLP to all TBS compatible source modules
  • Pro: Fixed a crash in the ccextract program with certain H.264 video streams carrying very long SEI NALs
  • Pro: Added time offset to the generated files created with ccextract when H.264 and H.265 video is processed
  • Pro: Added the ability to add a description to the list of tuner commands in TSWatcher
  • Pro: Added an option to hide the TSReader running status when using TSWatcher
  • Pro: TSWatcher no longer stalls when stopping the scanning process. Now a dialog is shown with the number of TSReader instances still running with the option to immediately terminate them all
  • Pro: TSWatcher now generates an alarm when no data is being sent - useful for a UDP stream that's dead
  • Std/Pro: The IPTV source module now accepts MRLs on the command-line
  • Std/Pro: For UDP, RTP and HRTP protocols, the MRL can now include the Ethernet NIC address to bind to by adding a dash and the address after a dash at the end of the MRL. For example: udp://224.0.0.1:1234-192.168.0.1
  • Pro: TSWatcher now supports importing the IPTV.m3u playlist file and is compatible with the IPTV source module
  • Pro: Multiple SCTE-35 streams per program are now supported. This results in the SCTE-35 log file changing slightly - it now includes a column for the stream number in the case of multiple SCTE-35 streams
  • Pro: Fixed an issue with the SCTE-35 stream icon not showing correctly if the CEUI registration descriptor was attached to the stream in the PMT and not the program
  • Std/Pro: UDP port numbers seen by the IP/DVB decoder are now shown when clicking on an IP address in the tree-view
  • Pro: Fixed an issue with infrequent packet loss when multiple clients were connected to the TCP/IP forwarder
  • Std/Pro: Fixed an issue with some source modules not tuning correctly when the "Return to this mux" function is used
  • All: When a single program transport stream is detected, TSReader now selects and displays the PMT rather than the PAT
  • Pro: Added the ability to do video/audio timing analysis with J2K video and PCM audio
  • Pro: Add a beta version of a command-line tool called PCAPtoTS which extract multicast UDP, RTP and HRTP streams from PCAP and PCAPNG files
  • Pro: Added decoding of color primaries, transfer characteristics and matrix coefficients for H.265 video (if present in the stream)
  • Pro: Added the ability to scan every n minutes to TSWatcher
  • Pro: TSWatcher now shows the program name and logical channel number when reporting a program number
  • All: The UDP (and related) source modules now have a debug window option
  • Pro: The TCP/IP forwarder module can now do straight TCP or HTTP. In HTTP mode, requesting the root sends the entire mux. Requesting a program number sends just that single program over the connection - http://127.0.0.1:1235/ for the entire mux and http://127.0.0.1:1235/2 sends program 2
  • Pro: Added -E nnnn or -E 0xnnnn to set the EIT PID and —G to set the SDT/BAT PID
  • All: The Ethernet adapter list shown in the UDP/RTP/HRTP source modules is now sorted by the adapter's name
  • All: The UDP, RTP and HRTP multicast/unicast source modules now show a warning dialog if they detect packets coming from multiple addresses. Useful should you start multiple encoders with output to the same address
  • All: The H.264 frame rate is now shown correctly - previously it could be twice the actual frame rate
  • Pro: The UDP forwarder setup now shows the Ethernet NIC description in addition to the address
  • All: Fixed an issue with an errant space in HTML exports
  • Pro: Changed the format of longitude/latitude when logging the signal with GPS position. Degrees west and south are now negative which works much better for mapping programs
