- Kworld
Saw a request to have another TV/Radio card supported. Downloaded (100MB !) and investigated. Schedule is stored in a binary file on disk. Header is variable size (depending on default directory) and there is a small trailer record ... but managed to work out most of it. Started implementing.

Had feedback that if the new facility is used to allow how WinTV2K is windowed then it can leave WinTV in background or minimised. Not really my fault, but now added window switching and keypress sending. The keypress stuff might also help with selcting TV-Out. 2.48b06

Made the whole command line configurable - because the -mTV controls whether or not there are normal Windows-style bars on screen. (2.48b05)
There is a registry setting that I could zap for PVR-350 to turn off local screen when using TV-Out ... not put it in yet.
Had a request to be able to control whether or not WinTV2K goes fullscreen when viewing. I have made it a bit more configurable (2.48b04) but the real reason that the user wants it is because they go in and change to TV-Out ... so would be even better if I could force TV-Out. Needs some more research on command line options to WinTV2K

- Nebula DigiTV
3.11b4 from Nebula came out on Sunday. It includes registry polling but they forgot to save updated registry when deleting entries via web. Had note back from them saying that this is now fixed.
Because of this, I have now changed defaults for fresh installs to not require ForceExit.
Also changed default for web URL data to make channel number 3 digits.
Initiation of recording queue entry through DABDig to Nebula DigiTV web interface works if username but no password is set on DigiTV web interface.
Also removed RegBin as should always be set to 1.

- External Channel Changer
Added some code to invoke external software to change channel - e.g. Girder.
The basics work but not for all devices - because sometimes there is an in-line wait until the end of the show and other times the event is added directly to the device schedule. Need to make a more general solution - perhaps requeue aimed just at this device. 2.48b01

- Leadtek
Add support for selection of Leadtek CVBS and S-Video. 2.48b02

- Technotrend DVB
Modify support for Technotrend DVB-T to provide channel lookup. 2.48b02

- General
Made a release of the 2.47 code - called it 2.47b08

- Virtual VCR
Had a request to allow change of channel parameter because user is recording from a video source note TV tuner. Easy enough to do but need some more details of exactly what the command line should be - e.g. should the parameter simply be left out or does it need something else to tell it where the source is.

- Nebula DigiTV
Nebula have released a new Beta of 3.11 - primarily to get around their leap year bug.
However, also gives a chance to try out the new HTTP interface.
Made new version (2.47b06) to use their chosen syntax but issue will remain with Id/Password handling. Needs some more experimentation.
In any case - it does not seem to result in data being saved to registry, even on exit of DigiTV and DigiTV still not polling registry for updates. Sent email to Nebula.
