Media Center 19.0.64 Mac -- Available Here
« on: October 25, 2013, 04:49:56 pm »

This is the latest release of Media Center 19 for Mac.  Please post bugs here.  Please start a new thread for anything requiring discussion.  Non-bug posts will be deleted.

Download:
http://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v19/latest/MediaCenter190064.dmg

19.0.64 (10/25/2013)

1. Fixed: Integer playback mode was not working properly with devices the used MSB padding instead of LSB padding.

19.0.63 (10/25/2013)

1. Fixed: Integer playback mode was not working correctly with devices that used padding.

19.0.62 (10/25/2013)

1. Changed: Integer mode will work with more hardware.
2. Fixed: Media Network was not working properly.

19.0.60 (10/24/2013)

1. NEW: Added support for integer mode playback ( http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=84657.0 ).
2. Faster: Improved performance, with JRMark scores are about 40% higher for the database section and 5% higher for the image section.
3. NEW: Real-time 2xDSD output using DoP (configure in DSP Studio > Output Format).
4. Fixed: Dropboxes (in tagging action window for example) would sometimes lose keyboard focus so you couldn't type anything.
5. Fixed: Drop suggestion boxes were drawn without a border.
6. Faster: Core drawing engine uses SSE acceleration for flushing and flood filling (helps performance of all user interface).
7. Faster: Speed improvements to date handling that help performance in many areas of the program.
8. Fixed: Crashes on 10.9 (Mavericks) in Media Network http header handling.
9. Fixed: App signing was not being done right.  Could cause warning message at install time about unrecognized developer ID.
10. Changed: Improved how Options > Audio exposes Core Audio devices to make device selection more clear.

19.0.57 (10/17/2013)

1. Fixed: Ape files with very long paths (> 260 characters) could crash on import.
2. Fixed: Ape format files on read-only drives could not be imported or played.
3. Fixed: Right-to-left reading text (Hebrew for example) was not displayed correctly. Symbols for each word were all bunched on top of each other.
4. Changed: The processor extension requirement has been lowered to SSE2 (added in 2001 to Intel, 2003 to AMD). Previously SSSE3 was required.
5. Fixed: When converting audio to WAV format, the RIFF chunk size could be set wrong by 8 bytes.
6. Changed: Updated Chinese language files (thanks kelijun).

19.0.55 (10/11/2013)

1. Fixed: Filenames containing combining diacritic marks (German umlauts for example) were displayed incorrectly in file listings and could cause crashes.
2. Changed: Volume up / down commands from hot keys (volume keyboard buttons, remote, etc.) work in 5% increments instead of 1% increments.

19.0.54 (10/10/2013)

[Build was pulled due to not containing the latest code updates]

19.0.53 (10/8/2013)

1. Fixed: Deadlocks (beach-balls) could occur when viewing file lists with thumbnail images.
2. Fixed: 2XDSD was included in the drop-list for DSP / Output Format / Output Encoding even though it's only supported with ASIO on Windows.
3. Fixed: Genre field could be incorrect when imported from certain M4A format files with integer id3v1 genres.  In MC they would look like an '8' in parenthenses instead of "Jazz" for example.
4. Fixed: Handling of 32-bit integer input files was not working in the last few builds.
5. Fixed: Added support for MP4 files that used a custom genre atom in their tag, but stored a standard genre by putting a number in parenthesis.
6. Fixed: Double-click on the pause button while playing was not stopping.
7. Changed: Updated the Indonesian translation (Thanks elda).
8. Fixed: Fonts that used left or right overhangs could draw with the overhang portion cropped.
9. Fixed: The white-list for allowing system volume to work while bitstreaming was not working with some Resonessence Labs hardware.
10. Changed: Added the ability to use the token [User] in the playerbar to display the name of the current user.
11. Fixed: Customization to the playerbar would not always take effect right away.
12. NEW: Added 'Set levels from decibel meter' button to Room Correction to make it easier to calibrate levels.

19.0.49 (10/2/2013)

1. Fixed: Copying zone settings was causing crashes.
2. Fixed: In the JRiver folder under Application Support, an unnecessary "Generic" folder was getting created at program startup.
3. Fixed: A running instance of Media Center would prevent OSX from shutting down.
4. Fixed: Audio calibration tool was not available because the plugin 'in_audiotest' was not included with the build.
5. Fixed: Skin effects menu item was missing.
6. Fixed: Many non-applicable image/video items were still in the options dialog and some menus.

19.0.47 (9/27/2013)

1. Changed: Increased default internal audio buffer size and provide more user control over internal and hardware buffering.

19.0.46 (9/26/2013)

First build of MC19 for Mac.
1. Changed: Uses the Boost library for regular expressions which is more powerful than the previously used Posix library.

Sorry guys. MSB Analog DAC plays distorted in normal or integer. I loaded an older version. I appreciate the effort.

If you turn off integer, it should be the same as always.  If you leave integer off, power cycle the DAC (and maybe computer), is playback clean or distorted?

I turned off integer and rebooted the computer and DAC. The new version plays fine now with no integer.

Thanks Matt

Hello. I downloaded the latest build, .64.

With integer mode off - distortion on playback of 16/44.1 and 24/192 files. No sound when playing DSD files via bit streaming (DoP)

With integer mode on - distortion on playback of 16/44.1 and 24/192 files. No sound when playing DSD files via bit streaming (DoP)

I did power cycle the DAC as well and re started MC.

OK I did the same and now with integer off everything including DSD plays fine!

Will boldly try integer mode one more time...

That's hard for me to explain, because with integer mode off, it should be like old builds.

Is playback working nicely for anyone with integer mode off in this build?

Yes, this build works fine with integer not selected.

That's better (and more like I'd expect).

I don't think the padding code is working right for devices that use 24-bits in a 32-bit package.  I'm not sure what's going on.  It'd be good if we could find one of these DACs to test.  The Mytek we have is like this, but it doesn't offer integer mode.  All the other ones we have use 24-bit packages.

Ok I tried once more to set it to integer mode, first time it crashed shortly there after (log file attached).

But one more interesting thing, though perhaps it is moot.

Without integer mode using bit streaming (DoP) the DSD files are coming across as DSD files as indicated by the MSB DAC.

However with integer mode enabled they are coming across as 176 (sample rate) files and not DSD per the MSC DAC.

At least it does sound wonderful without integer mode! (BTW - that was no intended as a sarcastic comment)

Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help?

Only incredibly loud static (with music barely detectable in the background) with Meridian Explorer DAC in integer mode.  Plays fine in normal mode if you start with integer mode turned off, but once you try integer mode, will not play properly at all (in integer mode or without) once attempted in integer mode.

Audirvana Plus works fine in integer mode or without (direct mode off).  Decibel works fine (not integer mode-capable).

I just tried a Wavelength Crimson DAC 24/192 in Integer. Static resulted. A no go I'm afraid. I also have a Benchmark DAC -2 HGC here that I will try latter.

The Benchmark HGC failed to work in integer. Distortion resulted.

I Have tried with my Micromega MyDAC, and it doesn't work in Integer Mode. I got software crash first, and then distorsion. (Same with M2Tech Hiface 2 but not sure it supports Integer Mode).

I'm running .064, does the same with .060,

Hiface2 is XMOS based so it will be integer capable.
