JRiver Media Center 19.0.76 for Debian
« on: November 15, 2013, 04:51:22 pm »

http://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v19/latest/MediaCenter-19.0.76.deb

Purchase link

19.0.76 (11/15/2013)

1. Fixed: More tweaking of the ALT-GR international keyboards.

19.0.74 (11/12/2013)

1. Fixed: International keyboards, ALT-GR no longer generates an unexpected character.
2. Changed: More .deb file tweaking to work with gui installers.

19.0.73-1 (11/11/2013)

1. Fixed: Menus were in the background in some windows managers.
2. Changed: .deb to work around xfonts and platform architecture dependencies. xfonts-75dpi and xfonts-100dpi still need to be installed but aren't included in the dependencies list.

19.0.73 (11/10/2013)

1. Fixed: When first showing a window, a white box could appear at the wrong position and then move to the correct position.
2. Fixed: Tooltips (and other similar windows) could incorrectly show a taskbar button in some cases.
3. Fixed: Showing a tooltip could shift the focus away from the main program.

19.0.72 (11/7/2013)

1. Faster: Unlocked SSE acceleration in image / drawing engine providing faster performance, and better looking rendering.
2. Changed: More dependency tweaking for MultiArch.
3. Changed: Program has an icon now.
4. Changed: Configuration files are now UTF-8. To revert to an earlier release you must restore settings from a MC backup.

19.0.70-1 (11/5/2013)

1. Changed: Text drawing better supports international characters.
2. Changed: More precise dependencies for package installation.

19.0.70 (11/4/2013)

1. Changed: Timeout changed to Dec 8 2013

19.0.65 (10/29/2013)

1. Changed: An icon now appears in the Unity dock (and others) when minimized. No title yet ;)
2. Fixed: http authentication. Allows Library server auth to work.
3. Changed: Removed ogg support until the input plugin is repaired.

19.0.62 (10/25/2013)

1. Fixed: Windows title. Shows when minimized.
2. Changed: Program binary name is now mediacenter19 to allow side-by-side versions to run properly.
3. Changed: Updated debian build package to be more to spec. To replace the current version first remove the existing version (will not affect library or settings). Do this by: sudo dpkg -r mediacenter. Then install the new build. For non-debian systems, remove /usr/bin/mediacenter.

19.0.61 (10/24/2013)

1. Fixed: Pause now works with ALSA playback.
2. Fixed: Dragging the main window to position it was not working nicely.
3. Fixed: Menu tracking and keyboard navigation was not working properly.
4. NEW: Added desktop files and icon.

19.0.60 (10/22/2013)

1. Changed: Better ALSA device enumeration, should help to coexist with pulseaudio.

19.0.59 (10/21/2013)

1. Fixed: SSDP discovery stopped working after a short time.

19.0.57 (10/17/2013)

1. Changed: Prevent message boxes from popping up in /mediaserver mode.
2. Fixed: DLNA, problems with some http 1.1 devices.

19.0.56 (10/10/2013)

1. Changed: Attempt to back off requirements to SSE2.
2. NEW: If the default lucida font isn't found will fall back to a different font (requires the xfonts-100dpi package)

19.0.54 (10/08/2103)

1. NEW: Added support for 24-bit ALSA devices.
2. Fixed: When playback failed to start, it could lead to a crash.
3. Fixed: Mouse move tracking was not working, causing many UI issues.
4. Fixed: Typing in an edit control that showed suggestions could segfault.

19.0.53 (10/07/2013)

1. Fixed: Window minimize, maximize, and restore work.
2. NEW: Compiled without SSE support. Need Feedback.

19.0.52 (10/4/2013)

1: NEW: Fallback to S16_LE sound if the ALSA driver doesn't support S32_LE.
2: Fixed: Font spacing and switched to Lucinda.

This was my post in the 19.0.74 Thread

"After updating to 19.0.74 I am experiencing a strange problem (running Ubuntu 13.10 x64).  It installed without errors and the first time I ran it it worked perfectly and I closed the program.  The next time I ran the program the window would not open up.  It created the second icon in the launcher but that is all it does.  I have tried closing and re-opening it, I have tried rebooting, I tried re-installing it.  Nothing works.  I reinstalled version 19.0.72 and it still works well.  Anyone else have this happen?  I don't think I changed any settings but I am not positive so it is possible that I changed a setting that is causing this."

After installing 19.0.76 I still had the same problem.  However I finally figured it out.  I have 2 monitors connected to my computer (my TV is the 2nd).  For some reason releases 74 & 76 are showing up esclusively on the 2nd monitor (TV).  Versions 72 and prior don't do that and no other program does that.  So far I have not been able to find a setting in MC to correct this so my work around is to set the system to mirror the monitors.  For now this doesn't seem to be a big deal but in the long term I don't want to have the monitors mirrored.

Thanks,
Jim

@JimCo06:
What desktop are you running?  I noticed with KDE 4.10 some strange window/screen issues like you describe, but since 4.11, all is well.

Depending on your launcher, you can also choose Move from the icon and then just click/drag the MC window back to the primary screen....

MediaCenter seems to be idling at 8% on my system (i7 2600k).

Hi Mike,
I am running the Unity desktop on Ubuntu 13.10 x64, just a plain install, no modifications or customizations.  Both monitors are attached to the computer through an ATI Radeon video card. The primary monitor is connected with the standard DVI connector while the TV is using an HDMI connection.

I can't seem to find an option to "Move", but I'll keep looking.  I will also try dragging the window.

Thanks for the suggestions.

I've compared the jriver benchmarks between my windows and debian systems. I understand were in early stages of development, but these two were particularly bad and are bringing the score way down (2800 vs 4000).

Bilinear rendering 4.142 (0.853)
Bicubic rendering 2.370 (0.502)

Is this something in my system or something in MC that will be addressed at some point?

Thanks.

Operating system: SUSE 12.3 x64

Buglist:

1. The BROWSE-buttons won't start the browser
2. solved
3. none of the skins but NOIRE show the play-buttons.
4. not possible to access the burning device
5. not to many windows have titles
6. File locations can't be edited
7. Window will open delayed
8. solved
9. resizing windows is almost impossible
10. window operations causing the window to flicker (background turns white, no contents visible, sometimes for long time)
11.Renaming (moving) files by setting up base path and rules generating wrong pathes:
    Base path: The base path as no effect at all
    Rule: Instead of replacing the existing path, the rule is added to the end of the existing path.
    Also, you have to enter the backslash instead a slash to generate a subdir.
12. Importing a database which was generated under Windows will not allow you to change to UNIX path declaration (would be nice to have)

Cannot install at all.  I get an error message that the i386 architecture is not supported.  My install is 64bit (AMD) even though I am on an intel computer.  Solutions?

If you're on debian you need to do:

dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update


Some of the packages you need to install the i386 version from. See the installing on 64-bit topic on top of the Linux board.

Are you using proprietary drivers in Linux?

We can add a few things to this list (on Debian Wheezy x64):
- Hotkeys don't work: F2 (edit), Ctrl-A (select all), Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V (copy/paste, Delete (delete :)).
- When editing a field, arrows, tab, etc don't work to navigate fields.
- Dragging a window behaves erratically, it jumps all over the place, suddenly moves off screen, etc etc. (Nr. 10)
- SACD and dff/dst files aren't playing.

Copy and paste doesn't seem to be working either (when trying to c/p expressions and whatnot).

I'm thinking of buying it. Is there a VST plugin with which the program is compatible?

Thanks in advance

It's possible the SSE code isn't working. Will take a look now that we've almost reached the end of the server blues..
