- TiVoWeb
Added parameter substitution to TiVoWeb.
Although the parameter list in the TiVoWeb interface is pretty much hard-coded because of the messing around with date/time fields, I had documented a possible way to hard-code extra parameters.
This was by adding new fields to the start of the variable part of the URL in the dabdig.ini
This works well - but requires the parameters to be fixed. By now making them use the substitution mechanism it means that other fields can be calculated dynamically - for example, a version of manrec supports the episode name being passed in, so this could be handled in DABDig by adding Episodestr=$EP& to the end of the URL in the ini file.

257b12 is now available

Decided to make a release of the various changes.

So - 257b12 is now available.

- General - Allow time-delayed retries on failed internal send of URL.
- Nebula - add the new (3.5.21) PostTime/PreTime fields just in case future versions of their software rely on it being present.
- WebScheduler - switch from using the programme name to FileNamePartial.
- GBPVR - add more flexibility in handling channel name.
- OnlineTVRecorder - Add support for OnlineTVRecorder.
- General - Allow double-quote in synopsis to be converted because it can break external systems when passed as a parameter.
- TiVoWeb - allow configuration of length of synopsis sent to TiVoWeb.
- Nebula - make the executable name configurable to support the HD version (and also version 3.7 of DigiTV).
- WinTVPVR - add mechanism to minimise an already open window via AutoItX.
- General - Add more generic flexibility in recorded file name so that all devices can benefit from the Substitution facility.
