3. Fixed: When more recordings were scheduled than the number of available tuners, scheduled television recordings could be handled incorrectly, resulting in numerous short recordings of different television programs.

19.0.151 (7/11/2014)

1. Fixed: Get Movie & TV Info was getting a low resolution image from Rotten Tomatoes.
2. Faster: Browser components cache their expression so using a big expression in a pane is faster.

7. NEW: Added '4xDSD in native format' to the real-time DSD encoding choices.

19.0.149 (7/2/2014)

1. Fixed: After deleting files from a Smartlist, the list would not always update properly.
2. NEW: Added a "Save settings as defaults" button on television recording wizard, to save certain settings, including auto tagging, to be applied in subsequent recordings when they are scheduled.
3. Fixed: The previous build (148) was not showing files on handheld devices.

2. Fixed: Skinning supports over-sized search clear buttons.
3. Fixed: Some files in TS (transport stream) format would not play on LS clients.

6. Changed: Red October Standard/HQ/Custom selection of video renderer will be used with Video capture devices with hardware compression in non-timeshifting mode (it has already been done previously for timeshifting mode).
7. NEW: Added MCWS/v1/DSP/Set function for turning a DSP on or off.

3. Changed: Tracks with multiple artists will use (Multiple Artists) for Album Artist Auto.

6. Changed: The field "Involved People" maps to the ID3v2 tag IPLS.

4. Faster: Converting audio to 64-bit for internal processing is up to 50% faster.
5. Fixed: Parsing of some JSON formatted web results was incorrect, especially arrays of data.  Could affect results from Youtube, Facebook, TheMovieDB, Rotten Tomatoes and others.
6. Changed: Reworded "Start recording early by:" to remind users that they can use negative values to delay starting of recording a television show.
7. Changed: Merged DVBC frequency tables Switzerland.cablecom.xml and Switzerland.UPC Cablecom.xml

Thanks for the update. The five second cut-off at the end of a 44.1 track that is followed by a HD track is still there though ...

I'm not seeing that.  Are you resampling?  What's the between tracks mode of Options > Audio?  What happens if you change that mode?

It happens whether I resample or not. Fooled around with a lot of settings to no avail. thediscman and others reported it on the .161 thread. Here is a copy of my Audio settings

Correction!

I was NOT resampling. Thought I was. putting everything at the same sample rate does solve it. But it still shouldn't happen though ...

Quote from: Dirhael
In this update, most of the time when progressing from one music track to the next (no matter if manually skipping, or "natural" progression) the music stutters for a few seconds (sounds as if you've got a scratched CD). At this point the player shows "buffering...". This happens no matter what codec/container is used.

 All my music is stored on a NAS, connected over a dual link gigabit LAN. This never happened with earlier builds. Downgrading to *.160 solves the issue.
(posted in the 161 build thread)

Issue fixed in this build :)

MC 162 still crashes when ending a flac stereo track (5 seconds before the end) and when the next tracks is a 6 channels flac. It seems to be related to the other issue with the lost of 5 last seconds of a track.

1. Fixed: MCWS Browse/Children could return invalid XML.

Since this version :

MCWS/v1/Browse/Children

now returns music artist names in this format:

Myshkin's Ruby Warblers
Crosby, Stills & Nash

Is that by design or is that a bug ?

Seems to me like it double-escapes things. That seems incorrect.

It's by design, although we'll negotiate the design if you think there's a problem.

Ok, no problem. I have already adjusted my remote control application to handle this :

Note that you will have to update Gizmo as well, because it now shows music artist names with & in them.....

Double escaping can't be by design, it breaks everyone using it. :)
