      (This feature is untested, please let me know if it’s working, these settings are also used for DVR recordings. There is still a delay in playing because TV stream are real-time so it takes a few seconds to buffer enough video to have a valid stream. CPU usage should be minimal to none however.)

  • Improved Android launching of channels by opening to a new window (android launches external anyway) and removing the Stop Channel feature. Each user now automatically stops the previous transcoder if they switch channels before the standard timeout window (this has been increased to improve certain scenarios in which Android players would hang on requesting the media files for a moment)

The beta installer comes with a fully function version that stops functioning on February 28th. This will give you time try and provide feedback. Either a second BETA or official release will proceed after the expiration period. Please provide as much feedback as possible.
