Timeshift is still not working good, but there is a workaround thanks to "Non-exclusive record" feature added in the last version.

Start recording in DVB Dream and open recorded file in VLC while recording. Now you can pause, forward and rewind as with timeshift.

v1.6 (05.11.2011)

- Fixed many bugs
- Better support for Japanese EPG and channel names
- Now scheduler is able to suspend or hibernate the PC after the record
- Diseqc on AverMedia cards now should work
- Geniatech cards should work better
- Fixed a crash bug which happens after scan
* Cracked versions will not work stable! We recommend you buying it while the price is still the same and cheap. There will be a price change soon.
* Please report on the DVB Dream forum if you run into any problem with Geniatech or Avermedia, we can probably fix that. We just need testers.
* If DVB Dream doesn't display the codecs installed on your system, please manually add them into codecs.ini, you can also let us know on DD forum,
so that we will add them into next setup files.
* AVer3D Satellite TV, AVerTV Satellite PCI, AVerTV Galaxy should work well now on DD
* For better performance on HD, make sure you use "Enhanced Video Renderer" in Video Options (Only if your graphic card has the necessary hardware acceleration)
For SD channels, WMR7 is still recommended.
* SECOSD won't work on DD now, it needs an update from its author
* If DD interface is not completely in your own language or partially in English, you can translate the non-translated parts of the language INI files (in DD \languages) folder and post on DD forum for us to include in next versions.

v1.7 (17.11.2011)

- Unicable support added (only on TBS cards for now)
- CI/CAM support for AverMedia (not tested, please confirm)
- Support for NetUP devices (Diseqc & CI, not tested)
- BDA device error code:14 bug fixed which happens on some devices
- Initial installation dialog supports more languages now (Turkish,Greek,Chinese,Arabic,Ukranian,Farsi...)
- A few bugs in scheduler fixed
- Arabic epg bug fix
- Snapshot crash bug fixed
- LNB Power Off/On support added (in File menu, works only on TBS and Compro devices for now)
- EPG support option added for Israel cable provider HOT.
* If you encounter any problem with EPG text charset, you should pick the correct EPG code page instead of "auto"
* BDA Device options now provides different methods for diseqc (Main Menu->Options->Device Options)
* For unicable, you should select the LNB type as unicable while adding satellites in diseqc dialog
* Unicable and LNB Power Off/On is not supported on all devices. It should work fine on TBS cards with new drivers (these new drivers should be released by TBS in next few days)
* If you are still having problem with diseqc on AverMedia devices, please report. You just need to download latest aver media drivers.
* Kaspersky Antivirus is not recommended since it could be the culprit responsible for des.dll errors due to some false virus alarms / heuristic scan.

2.0 (06.08.2012)

DVBS-2 and Diseqc should work better on most of DVB cards/boxes now
Now vendor specific functions are supported in separate BDA extension files under devices\bda_extensions folder, it is possible to force extensions by editing conf.ini
DVB-C and DVB-T/ISDB-T improvements (different bandwidth and different QAM frequency lists are now possible)
All terrestrial/cable frequencies are now grouped in country/city sets
Now Pilot & Roll Off values can be specified on scan interfaces
SkyStar HD2 should be able to lock on DVB-S2 transponders now
DD automatically recognizes the codecs installed on your system and updates codecs.ini during setup, and there is also a new button "Add installed codecs" on video options dialog, to add newly installed codecs into codecs.ini with just one click
Some network search and LCN related bugs fixed
Diseqc repeats are now handled by device interfaces
Positioner as defalt doesn't try to retune because of the crashes on some card drivers
*If your SkyStar HD2 remote doesn't work, please try "Twinhan" remote type, and report on the DD forum
*DVB-C and DVB-T/ISDB-T frequencies are now stored in "cable.ini" and "terrestrial.ini" files
*For terrestrial and cable users, a clean install & scan is recommended
*If you still have problem with diseqc, please report on the forum and try changing "main menu->options->device options->diseqc method" and increase the values in "main menu->options->performance->delay after diseqc" and "diseqc repeats"
*If you have crashes during scan when you use BDA device interface, disable TIF under device options
*If you are a programmer, believe that you can write device extensions to support your DVB cards/boxes please contact us, we will provide the API, it is quite simple. Possible to support CI / Diseqc / DVB-S2 / Blind Scan / LNB power off through device extensions
*Report problems on DD forum please




2.1 (18.08.2012)

New versions of TSWriter2, CHLTools, RecentRecordings, AutoCHLBackup modules
Tool tips, possible to turn off ("Disable tool tips" in Preferences/General)
Bug fixes


2.1a (18.08.2012)

Hauppauge Nova HD s2 problem on 8psk channels fixed
settings.cfg is automatically restored from backup if gets corrupted
Some scan bug fixed (which caused nameless channels especially on 13e)
TT-connect S2-4600, TeVii S660, S630 should work better now
* Now you can tell DD how long it should wait until signal lock (Preferences->Performance->Tuner Timeout), this can speed up channel scan by removing unnecessary delay on no-signal transponders.





2.2 (19.09.2012)

Registration problem fixed, caused problem for some registered users !
DVB Dream now handles system wake up from sleep or hibernation.
Windows 8 EVR crash fixed , which used to happen when switched back from the full screen mode
Log files are now all in one place (\Logs)
"Reset Device" menu option fixed, it was not working when more than one device of the same brand are installed
EPG is now cached (disabled by default, grid-based epgplus module will use this feature, soon to be released)
Now "Direct Connection" is enabled by default, in video options. Please remove the checkmark if you get any graph errors.
* On terrestrial and cable devices, LCN (logical channel numbers) & Network Scan is enabled by default




2.2a (24.09.2012)

New grid based EPG module "EPGPlus", with coloring based on content type. (Try it and share your ideas/suggestions please. Main menu->Modules->epgplus. You need to activate EPG cache under settings / performance. Content coloring is ependent on your provider, not all providers send content info in EPG correctly)
EPG should display characters correctly now (tested on 42e, 28e, 19e, 13e, 7w and DVB-T UK)
Option to remember last selected quick favorites
Bug fixes
* If EPG still doesn't display characters correctly, please report on the forum by specifying region/satellite , frequency. We'll fix it.
* LibertyReserve and Moneybookers payment options have been added.




v2.2b (10.10.2012) What's New

EPG Plus improvements (Tv window, channel logos, right click translate/search in IMDB/Google menu options, remote control support and possible to move between events by keyboard arrow keys.).
Timeshift should work a lot better now
New EPGNumbers module (by X05) will automatically assign channel numbers in the same order as provider's STB / EPG, for most of the European providers. You just need to select which provider you use in module options.
Audio Left/Right channel selection (panning) on channel properties now works (to be used when audio channels have different languages or comments/narrative)
New option "Display only selected satellite in remote tab" in prefences/ch.list
"Assign SIDs to ChNo" Tools menu and scan dialog option. (Useful for North American users, you could just use the remote tab in STB order)
New record file naming options. ($5=ChNo $6=SID $7=SatPos) Possible to include channel numbers in recordings now (It is so as default, if you assign channel numbers in remote tab)
DVB Dream will scan faster when network search is NOT enabled.
Bug fixes
* EPGPlus is now default and EPG cache is enabled by default. So you can disable if you don't use EPG at all. Legacy EPG can be found in Tools/Misc menu as well.
* TBSCI module is now disabled by default, you need to enable it if you use CAM on TBS devices
* You can get a free DVB Dream licence !, if you can help us preparing a package of logo files for EPGPlus module (complete logo files for a satellite), check the related post in DD forum for details.
* You can also get a free DD licence if you can add device support for the (yet) unsupported cards (We will provide sample source code if you can write a simple BDA extension to support diseqc & remote control etc on BDA drivers)
