Looks like GBPVR has added a new field - priority - and made it mandatory. Also a new optional field conversion_profile.
So added ability to enable them in DABDig but with the default that both are turned off so that it does not cause problems for existing users with older versions of GBPVR.

Breaking in a new domain name ...

I finally decided to register a DABDig domain name.
I am still leaving the original site in place for now but will probably switch over on the next official release.
Nothing new to see - but you can try it at

Microsoft Media Center Edition (MCE)

- Microsoft Media Center Edition (MCE)
DId some more work on direct scheduling into MCE via click-to-record. Looks promising but since I do not have MCE then I need someone to test it.

- ChrisTV
Had a report that the time format in ChrisTV was different. Rather than dd/mm/yy it was
There was already code to handle USA format (mm/dd/yy).
Took the opportunity to make it completely comfigurable by adding a new field - ChrisTVDateSyntax. Default syntax is now $DD/$DM/$DY but can be easily changed in dabdig.ini
Solution here is to set it to $DY.$DM.$DD

Recent versions of GB-PVR default to using SQLite as the underlying database, rather than the "Access" mdb format.
This causes a problem for DABDig because I do not yet have a way to read/write the SQLite data.
Therefore, to use DABDig with GB-PVR you will need to configure GBPVR to work the old way.
