Hi everyone, im back with a new version of DAFTGRAB, this time less dependant and with more features.
I only did this last night in about 2 hours, so its still buggy but thought i would release anyway.
HDTV also works in this version.

OK, it installs and plays the stream.

Record is greyed out until I change the folder in File Explorer.

How do I change channel?

What does the file explorer do?

Small points: how about a nice icon to replace the VBproj icon?

:)

FIXED: encrypted channels now work (if they dont just reboot your dreambox)
I had to reboot after using Daftgrab so I could watch an encrypted channel (not with Daftgrab, on TV).

go into command prompt, navigate to the directory with the dll, C:\windows\system32\ probably, and then type

REGSVR32 axvlc.dll

and it should work :)

Here is my report
1) Installation - no problem
2) Straming - picture is not good, breaks up a lot.
3) Recording works, but the recording is as bad as the stream. I use the recording facility of the Gemini Image all the time to record to my computer, and the quality is good, with the occasional little fault.
4) When recording, the stop button does not respond. As a matter of fact, I have to use the task manager to kill it.
5) It is annoying that you have to enter the details all the time

All in all this program needs a bit of work. Question: Why do you need this program when you can use your browser and the vlc to stream and record?

Try testing your pre-release software on a PC that doesn't have VB or any other dev tools installed on it.

:p alright guys chill out :p was only trying to help, the reason i made this when there is vlc stream from browser, is that vlc stream doesnt always play encrypted chans, also im adding features to downsample and setup a stream server so u can watch tv and change chans from a remote location outside your lan using normal broadband. also was gonna put in make-dvd functions and stuff...

If you ever work in software development, telling the testers to "chill out" when they give you a bug list isn't recommeneded; it's not personal.

All we're doing is using Daftgrab and giving you a bug list and our impressions. ???
