SmartDVB x86/x64

SmartDVB x64

The first x64 beta build of SmartDVB is now available for download. The build includes an initial port of channel listing and epg to unicode. The epg database smarteit.db has been modified to allow for full UNICODE EPG/EIT support. Other than that the x64 build uses the same baseline code as the 32 bit version and hence the feature set for both versions should be about the same. Care has been taken to support most of the legacy application functionality, including blindscan and plugins. 
This version also improves video quality and error recovery, including better 4:2:2 handling/processing. 

The build is not provided as an install but as a portable .zip archive. The installation process is simple. 
-Just extract the archive and register the included filters 
-Run filters\registerfilters.bat with administrator priveleges (for example by right clicking on the registerfilters.bat and selecting 'run as administrator' with the file explorer) 
-The x64 build requires x64 decoder versions (both video and audio), previously installed 32 bit versions of decoders will not be seen by the 64 bit version, so please make sure the appropriate x64 versions of the codecs you wish to use with the x64 build are installed. 

The 64 bit executable SmartDVB.exe should now be runnable. 

It is not required to install the 32 bit version alongside the x64 version, the two versions should run independent of one another. 

Please note device support for the x64 build is limited for some devices, not all (legacy) device manufacturers have x64 bit sdk's available. is is not available so technisat skystar devices will not be fully functional. Tevii devices will also only, possibly, work with the tevii (bda) device type, the tevii.dll required for the sdk is also not available as a x64 dll.

First impressions from DVB Support, tested with HD Pack 2.7 with latest x64 Kit files, it works fine on both HD and SD channels with Cyberlink and LAV Filters.The biggest surprise we've seen in the program is that it has a MDAPI host program which adds the possibility to run 32-bit plugins in 64-bit SmartDVB! So put vPlug, etc. into mdplugins folder to activate emu.

As always, although quite extensive tests already have been done for this new beta, please still be careful when installing beta versions, preferably do a clean install or if you would like to test the upgrade process make sure you backup your previous install (the installer should backup your essential files if so required, but you never know of course).

It is time to use SmartDVB

First of all, DVB Support recommended that you use the following combination if you want a stable system!

DVB Support tested the latest SmartDVB v0.3.0 and inform that if there is up to date and free SmartDVB, you don't need anymore to use one of outdated/limited/commercial/cracked/buggy programs to watch digital channels from satellites on the PC! Although it's free, it does exactly what commercial program do, so commercial programs have not any advantage than the new SmartDVB!

Multi recorder with plugin support (you can record up to 64 channels at same TP), useful channel list with logo, search and filters support, OSD support with remote, blind scanner, renderless mode, useful favorite feature and others features (remote, diseqc, usals, multi monitor, streaming, timeshift, aspect ratio settings, CI support, powerful scanner, EPG, scheduler, snapshot, subtitle support, media play etc.) are available in the new SmartDVB.

So DVB Support recommended that you remove all Sat/DVB player softwares from your system and install the latest SmartDVB only.Run SmartDVB, select your device and set your satellites and then run its scanner to reach your channel list.From right click > connection menu, you can set your favorite filters and EVR, that's all!

Here some important hints for the latest SmartDVB:

If you encounter any problem with the program, please write it into the SmartDVB forum if you want to fix the problem and see more development of the program.

- DVB Support wishes to thank to Jack Javo for his great program and development effort! -

[Setup Date: 26.11.2011]

[Setup Date: 25.11.2011]

Remember to mainly use the module (old hasn't been updated in a while, although i could update that module in future, for now the focus lies on so only use if it works better somehow for u, usually it won't). And if you report problems it's handy to at least try to mention where and in what situation it occured (not like "the scanner crashes", otherwise i have no clue, oh and pictures say a thousands words don''t they say?) and remember to copy smartdvb.log and bda.log (in the devices dir) as that can always come in handy for me.

SmartDVB 0.2.1 Beta3

SmartDVB 0.2.1 Beta2

*Please remove the previous 0.2.1 if installed otherwise the install will fail ofcourse (your settings should be preserved, although just in case make a backup of your smartdvb.db if your current channel/sat list is precious to you). Also would like to know if the install is okay for users using xp 64 bit.

SmartDVB 0.2.1 Beta

Please only use if you're willing to give encounter installation/operation issues and give feedback, if not use it at your own risk. Main issues hopefully fixed should be the scheduler functionality.
