  • Made recording and streaming much more resilient to different outcomes

SageTV plugin:
  • Add enable/disable of individual sources in plugin configuration screen.
  • Allow catchup server port and recording directory to be configured from SageTV

Cataloging:
  • Reduce cataloging time to 10 mins - previously took hours
  • Remove the catchup server host and port from podcast URLs from the catalog
  • Add a catalog start hour so cataloging always starts at a set hour of day and occurs every X hours
  • Only start cataloging on startup if the catalog looks sparse otherwise wait to scheduled time
  • Deal with duplicate programme entries in iplayer
  • Made catalog downloads interruptable so that cataloging can be more quickly terminated
  • Made catalog downloads retry on failure

Web page:
  • Add Type column to category web page
  • Add Type column to programmes web page

  • Control links in web server home page redirect back to home page rather than present message web page
  • Home page now shows active thread count and heap stats
  • Home page now shows growing size of catalog in progress and size of last catalog

General:
  • Moved the catchup server to its own JVM to limit the plugins impact on SageTV classpath
  • Set up RMI servers in plugin and the now separate server for better control and feedback
  • Add seed properties for 32bit windows e.g. windows XP
  • Increased maximum heap size to 500Mb

Media sources:
  • Fix Demand5 meta data (but demand5 no longer works possibly due to encryption)
  • Fix Iplayer series and episode number parsing errors

0.2.7 - First beta release.

Contains Iplayer catalog, watch and record to TV recordings

Enjoy
