Media Center 20.0.20 -- Available here
« on: October 01, 2014, 02:22:53 pm »

This is the latest version of MC20.  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/v20/latest/MediaCenter200020.exe

20.0.20 (9/30/2014)

1. Changed: More tweaks to video clock synchronization logic (to hopefully fix slow motion playback of TV recordings).

20.0.19 (9/30/2014)

1. Fixed: Setting the date on an image would always clear the IPTC and XMP tags instead of writing the new date.
2. NEW: Added DSP/Loudness function to MCWS to get and set the loudness value.
3. Fixed: Handle Leak in settings and video functionality.
4. Fixed: The open/close arrows and the text would overlap in the experimental Tag Action Window.
5. Fixed: Minor correction when loading multiple track CUE files.
6. NEW: Added a "Slow Motion Playback" submenu when watching videos.
7. Fixed: Switching a view between "Chart" and other modes could cause the chart to not be removed or crash.
8. Changed: Tweak to video clock synchronization logic (to hopefully fix slow motion playback of TV recordings).

20.0.18 (9/26/2014)

1. NEW: Added the expression function URLify to URL-ify a string.
2. Changed: DLNA: Added definitions to the sinkProtocolInfo to be able to present that we render high resolution MP4 files with AAC and AC3 audio.
3. Fixed: Setting Month to undefined will carry through and clear the month off of the date (previously it would say January).
4. Changed: When dealing with television subscriptions that specifies "All channels", a preliminary filtering is done so there will not be too many instances of the same show being recorded simultaneously.
5. Changed: When loading television EPG data in the background, MC will wait longer for external XMLTV EPG programs to complete loading data.
6. Changed: Added television subscription time mode selection ("One per day", "One per week", "All showings" etc.) in Theater View (previously MC defaulted to "one per day").
7. Changed: Updated Japanese translation files (thanks Kazuo Tsuchiya).
8. Changed: Updated Slovak translation file (thanks Peter Lukac).
9. Fixed: Some CableCARD television channels with multiple audio streams were not handled correctly.
10. NEW: Added the ability to specify refresh interval (number of hours) for background television EPG update, allowing multiple updates per day.  The options are 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 24 hours.
11. Changed: Updated German translation (thanks Bytestar).
12. Changed: Change 9 of previous build is modified as follows: If user has specified a time to automatically refresh television programming guide, MC will refresh the guide on or after the specified time, or 20 minutes after any previous runs, whichever is later.  The 20 minutes wait is needed because some background loading can take as much as 20 minutes to complete.

20.0.17 (9/19/2014)

1. Changed: The web browser throws away "Downloading picture data" status messages instead of showing them.
2. NEW: Added Delete Folder to Explorer Theater View views.
3. Fixed: Deleting a file from Playing Now (physical delete) wouldn't start playback of the next file.
4. Changed: Failures are reported when doing Update Library (from tags).
5. Changed: Updated Russian translation (thanks Vladimir Eremenko).
6. Changed: Revisited Duration/Bitrate and FPS calculations from 20.0.16.
7. NEW: Multiple EPG profiles can be executed during automatic background updates of EPG data.
8. Fixed: Secure CD rip mode was not getting enabled.
9. Changed: If user has specified a time to automatically refresh television programming guide, MC will refresh the guide on or after the specified time, or as soon as possible thereafter, without regard to whether the user has run EPG wizard recently.
10. Changed: Added television subscription recording option to search "All channels" for a given program, instead of just on specified channels.
11. Changed: Updated Chinese language files (thanks kelijun).
12. Changed: Television EPG wizard pages are re-organized so that automatic daily reload option is presented before the actual loading of data, and one can choose to skip loading data (only to configure auto loading options).
13. Fixed: Double-clicking at the end of the line in a chart would crash.
14. Changed: The Tag Action Window 'Show Tags In Current View' works a little better (you might need to customize visible fields once for the change to take effect).

20.0.16 (9/15/2014)

1. NEW: Import/Analysis of video files uses the new JRiver Video Engine for consistency across platforms.
2. Changed: The codec names used for the "Compression" field in video files are more consistent.
3. Changed: Options > General > Popup transparency mode also disables transparency for menus and tooltips if selected.
4. Fixed: CD burning was failing with error "Can't start the write.".
5. Fixed: Volume protection would override the startup volume setting.  Now startup volume has precedence.

20.0.15 (9/12/2014)

1. NEW: Added ability to configure certain recording properties in Theater View, of previously scheduled television recordings/subscriptions.
2. Fixed: An obscure bug when customizing television subscription in Standard View.
3. Changed: When scrolling (to a channel) in Theater View Guide grid using keys on remote control or keyboard, the key presses are overlaid on screen briefly.
4. Fixed: DSP presets wouldn't load equalizer settings reliably.
5. Changed: Separated the mk3d and mkv file types so special handling can be given to the 3d type.
5. Fixed: Multiple television devices identification problem.  Sorry, users of STB channels and auxiliary input channels must delete the channels and rescan.
6. Changed: When encountering problems downloading TV data during STB channel scan, MC will silently repeat the procedure a few times before informing user with a popup window.
7. Changed: The number of threads used for SACD DST decompression can be configured in the DSD/SACD input plugin.
8. Fixed: The WebRemote page wouldn't look right when visiting through the device presentation URL.
9. Changed: Updated Slovak translation (thanks Peter Lukac).
10. Fixed: Tag Action Window "Show Tags in Current View" didn't work properly with category views.
11. NEW: Added a Load / Save menu to the search box.
12. Fixed: DLNA: In windows, the SSDP responder wouldn't recover from a sleep so we stop and restart it now.

20.0.14 (9/9/2014)

1. NEW: Added "Add (artist)" to the playback commands so a full artist can be added to Playing Now.
2. Changed: MCWS/v1/DSP/SetTempo takes a Relative parameter to set the tempo relative to the current tempo.
3. Changed: Updated French translation (thanks Morand).
4. Changed: Updated Japanese translation (thanks Tsuchiya Kazuo).
5. Changed: Improved the Verge news reading capability.
6. Fixed: MC could crash when set to 100% cover art scaling, and playing media without cover art.
7. Fixed: Playing optical discs was broken in 20.0.13 in some situations.
8. Fixed: Having a DSP set for a file would cause it to fail to convert.

20.0.13 (9/5/2014)

1. Fixed: MCWS/v1/Playback/Zones wasn't honoring the hidden variable correctly.
2. Fixed: MCWS/v1/DSP/SetTempo returned a failure code even though it was working.
3. Fixed: For some television/video capture devices pressing Stop button immediately after pressing Pause button (or double-clicking Play/Pause button to Stop) would result in a crash.
4. Fixed: Hidden zones weren't hidden from the Zones toolbar button or from Theater View.
5. Fixed: MC could crash when using ZoneSwitch rules and switching library.

20.0.12 (9/3/2014)

1. NEW: ATSC television channels can be specified directly using a remote control or NumPad on keyboard, using '*' key on either remote control or NumPad, or '.' (decimal) key on NumPad, as separator betweem major and minor channels (e.g. "5.1" or "5*1").
2. Changed: When deleting from Playing Now, the next file will play instead of the last if the current track is deleted.
3. NEW: Added television subscription recording option "Search all fields for name".  This allows a name/title in Description field be matched, in addition to Name and Series fields.
4. Fixed: Television recording cleanup mode was not set when subscribing to a show in Theater View.
5. Changed: Updated the Indonesian translation (thanks elda).
6. Fixed: Default tags were not applied when subscribing to a television show in Theater View.
7. Fixed: Seeking in audio files with resampling active could result in a wrong position or skipping to the next file.

9. Fixed: The small live TV window in Theater View Guide did not show up if the Guide was in customized location.
10. Changed: BPM analysis of Analyze Audio won't overwrite an existing BPM value.
11. Changed: MCWS/v1/Playback/Zones hides hidden zones (unless you specify hidden=1 on the URL).
12. Fixed: Enabling volume when bitstreaming didn't always work.
13. Fixed: Media Center could crash when accessing the Drives & Devices list.

3. Changed: Updated Slovak translation (thanks Peter Lukac).
4. Fixed: Loading equalizer settings from a DSP preset wouldn't work reliably.
5. Changed: The screensaver will be disabled whenever the display is detached (instead of only when it's in fullscreen mode).
6. Changed: The order of playlists shown in the Add to Playlist Theater View menu is more logical.
7. Fixed: The find artist command in Theater View would have problems with list fields.
8. Changed: Updated Portuguese language file (thanks Joćo Mariz).
9. Fixed: Handheld volume adjustment would stick at 1% instead of the entered value.
10. Changed: Cover art scaling is locked on when the display is in the small Action Window.
11. Changed: Track links are evaluated with Play Doctor playback.
12. Changed: Updated Chinese language files (thanks kelijun!).
13. NEW: Enter on any field in Theater View will show files that match that search (instead of toggling the expanded state).
14. Changed: Updated the FFmpeg version used for transcoding.
15. NEW: Added M3U8 as a playlist format for a handheld.
16. NEW: In Theater View television Guide, pressing number keys on remote control or keyboard allows users to scroll to desired channels.

2. NEW: View your YouTube subscription feed in Theater View.

6. NEW: Added a feature 'iPod Support' to Options > General > Features to allow disabling iPod support.

6. NEW: Added a "Slow Motion Playback" submenu when watching videos.
1.  This seems to pop up the DSP Studio window over the video, and stop/resume playback very briefly - which will reset any temporary changes applied via madVR. (e.g. level expansion)
 [feature request removed]
 


2.  Removing or deleting the last item from Playing Now while it is playing no longer stops playback, instead it plays the previous file again.
 
Deleting the currently playing item, if it's the only one in the list, displays a "there is nothing to play" error.
 


3.  Options → General → Popup transparency mode still has issues:
 
  • When it is set to "disable over movies" transparency doesn't seem to be disabled at all.
  • When set to "disabled" it's disabling transparency for the tool-tip shadows rather than just the background.

[feature request removed]


4.  When a full-screen view is used for the first time after launching MC, it still loses focus.
The "Move mouse to edge of screen for controls. Press Esc to exit." prompt seems to be the cause of this.
 
This means that Media Center does not respond to keyboard controls like using the arrow keys to bring up the OSD or spacebar to pause/resume. I have to click on the window for controls to work again.
 
It only happens the first time you switch to Display View, once that message has been displayed, it's fine.
 


5.  Playing Now in Standard View no longer displays cover art when playing DFF or SACD ISO.
Theater View seems unaffected and shows the cover art.
 


[JRemote request removed]

7. [feature request removed]
 


8.  If Zone Switch activates when adding files to a zone, playback will be stopped in the current zone.
[feature request removed]

Media Network wont stream audio with the video (streaming TV shows to PS3). This only happens in MC20 and since the 20.0.17 build. Video still streams fine just no audio is even received by the PS3 console.

10. NEW: Added the ability to specify refresh interval (number of hours) for background television EPG update, allowing multiple updates per day.  The options are 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 24 hours.

Thank you so much! I can't wait to get back to Canada to be able to try.

(Oh wait... I'm in Milano and it's a beautiful day! Maybe I'll wait a couple of days before going back home ;D)

Guys,

I tried ripping my first CD using V20 tonight. initially it was the .17 build then I upgraded to the latest .20 build. Both were crashing on my Windows 8.1 x64 HTPC. I eventually managed to get it to rip however when I attempted to move the files to my NAS again it crashed.

My NAS is rock stable as is my LAN. System is clean (ran sfc to make sure and no AV software installed).

Logs http://pixienet.myzen.co.uk/jriver/Logs.zip if you need them.

Just ask if you need more info.

John

Right-clicking the headers in the audio analyzer window sends it behind the main MC window.

"Get Artist Image From LAST.FM"

Was this intentionally removed, or just somehow lost in translation?

Trying to use hardware accelerated 4K video decoding (DXVA Copy-Back via LAV Video) results in an instant crash.
 
Even with software decoding, trying to play back ShadowPlay recordings (also 4K) often results in Media Center crashing too.

Gizmo bug: http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=91996.0

If you hide any zone in MC20, no play to zones appear in Gizmo at all. The menu that pops up when you tap the top left corner is completely empty. Un-hiding all hidden zones will show the full list of zones in Gizmo as expected.

Display Oddities

1. Auto-Saving tags while working reset views. Resets location in Tiles and resets File List to far left if you were scrolled far right.

2. Display View on Monitor 1, move (Ctrl + Win + Z) MC to Display 2, try to maximize by double clicking Active Video, MC reverts to Standard View.

3. #2 above but vice-versa. If Video Display View is paused and moved to another monitor, Stop sends MC back to old monitor.
