[App] PVR+ 4.3

Post by geo650 » Thu Apr 20, 2017 10:29 pm

Hello Everyone!

Image

AFTER 7 YEARS... you can still use PVR+ !

Let's check what's new in PVR+ 4.3.
There are 2 versions:


PVR+ 4.3 FULL VERSION

and

PVR+ 4.3 LITE VERSION
with some functions removed.

All existing video filters and postprocessing modules are compatible, so SDK's generally are up to date and can be used for creating new filters and modules.

SOURCE CODE is also available.

Feel free to post your comments, ideas, fixes, addons etc.
Your feedback is highly appreciated. Thanks!


ENJOY!

Nice!!!

I have been using the full version last weekend and it works great! The "new" built-in outliner is a huge improvement. I could say that is perfect now. Thank you!!! :D

I have been trying the video filters out. The framed one is cute. I thought about a scanline filter for retro gaming, but I am pretty sure it would add some lag, so I won't bother. In the other hand, I am not sure if the zoom filter is successfully deactivate when I exit this function as it seems to me that the image is still zommed afterwards, but I might just made that up, I am not sure :roll:

BTW, what are the differences between the two versions (full and lite)? I have read the attached readme files but they seem to be identical on both. What features were removed?

Finally, may I ask as well how to deactivate PVRplus? In the readme file it is stated that it can be done from version 1.7+, but I don't know how (I usually comment out the line in my start-up script and reboot before removing it and installing the new version, instead).

Regards!!!

Nice, great tool has got updates. Just it's a pity here are not much active B series owners left :(

Good idea, but CPU might be too slow for smooth operation. But you can create a filter like that with TV frame, with half-transparent horizontal lines every odd or even line (actually create new png image only for the same filter) so it should give similar effect without any lag. Just an idea.

Zoom video filter sets initial values into video scaling registers at exit so it should be restored well. Be aware, default scaling settings for 16:9 ratio are not Full-HD 1920x1080! They're a bit zoomed in (= so called overscan).

Differences are visible in setup menu (MENU, REC). There are less options there, some of them are still working but you cannot disable them. Actually, I created LITE version for myself because I don't need all these things. Complete list of removed features from source code:

Code: Select all

#define EXTRA_OPTION_AD 
#define EXTRA_OPTION_CIP 
#define EXTRA_OPTION_DEL_EMPTY 
#define EXTRA_OPTION_DEL_MDB 
#define EXTRA_OPTION_ASYNC 
#define EXTRA_OPTION_TESTWRITE 
#define EXTRA_OPTION_TESTLOWSPACE 
#define EXTRA_OPTION_RECWARNINGS 
#define EXTRA_OPTION_LOCK 
#define EXTRA_OPTION_DEACTIVATION_SOURCE 
#define EXTRA_OPTION_SEMIOFF 
#define EXTRA_OPTION_RESTART 
#define EXTRA_OPTION_FONTCOLOR 
#define EXTRA_OPTION_TELETEXT
(no AD button support, no CI+ support, deleting empty files=always, deleting MDB=always, testing writing=always, testing low space=always, recording warnings=on, no option for locking REC button, no option for deactivation from source, no option for semi-power-off, no restarting function, no option for subtitle font color, teletext always allowed during recording).

Deactivation procedure is quite simple:
- enter setup menu (MENU, REC)
- select "disable PVR+" in option "On next power on"
- press ENTER
- power OFF TV by POWER button, then switch it ON again (i.e. restart).
- then PVR+ will show a message: "PVR+ Deactivated". It means you can overwrite PVR+ files because it is released from memory. After next reboot it will be loaded as usual, without any changes in startup script.
