Idiots guide to using dvbviwer

1> purchase and install dvbviewer software

2> download and install yankse in \MdPlugins subdirectory http://yankse.tforums.com/yankse/MDYankse-1-03.2- TT.zip (conax built in)

make sure subdirectory is named MDPlugins (MDP in capitals)

3> put softcam.key in the \MdPlugins subdirectory and in dvbviewer root dir (created using utility attached)

3> In the Filters directory, put regsvr32.exe (from Windows/System32), and drag and drop SkyAVC.ax to Regsvr32 to register it

4> put the channels.dat from SoftCSA (also attached) to the DvbViewer directory

5> ensure you have enabled Marfis Renderer

6> ensure you install softcsa attached in plugin directory

7> if you need ecm's they are in yankse.sid.cache in yankse zip

Off you go

where can i get full version of dvbviewer? (not technisat version)

Progdvb causing jerky and blocky picture so i need to get dvbviewer running if cant fix it also how do i get my skystar 2 remote to work with progdvb?

What is the best codec to install for picture quality? when i record any channel and play back as an mpeg the picture is not full screen but sort of compressed looking like a little box. anyone had this problem and is there any way to fix this? i cannot seem to get directdraw to kick in on the progdvb menu. :(

Rolf that site only has the plugins for dvb viewer, i already know of that site and most of the others but i cannot find the full version of dvbviewer as opposed to the technisat version. the technisat version is running fine in freeview so i assume the full version shoulddo the job no problem. Im having too many problems running progdvb with broken picture and blockyness even though transponder signal seems fine.

I think that the full version is a pay version, I got it quite a long time back and it didn't really work that well so dumped it.

Hi faginuk :)
No sorry i still have this problem, infact all the programs seem to do this. only suggestion to remedy the situation i know of at moment is to convert the mpeg using conversion software into a different size but that can take a while. more excellent info available here http://www.dvdrhelp.com/
just look under convert or guides etc on main menu page on the left and that will bring up a section on it. Also a good site to check dvd pplayer compatibilities to see what it supports. An excellent program would be "TMPGEnc" which is probably one of the best. You can set it up to convert your mpeg to a different Aspect Ratio or file type. Just convert for a few seconds to see results then when happy convert the whole file but it can take a long time to do depending on settings perhaps even 10 to 20 hours if converting to mpeg 2 etc. But i recon there must be a way to fix this problem without having to convert the mpeg, i think there must be a codec somewhere out there that works with dvb software to fix this problem but i havent really looked enough to find it as i am too busy just trying to get a decent picture without the jerkyness any blockyness at the moment and i think the problem is my processor just is not up to it either.

Hi guys,
Just wondering if you have given DVBDream a go. Nice stable picture and very user friendly. Same problems with recording though (small picture with WMP).

WMP is very restrictive, esp V9. Try PowerDVD 5, or failing that, WinDVD which both come with superb codecs. The former is my favourite. Full-screen, full-on!

i installed powerdvd 5 trial previously just so i could get the codec but it has not made any difference in progdvb. still got stretched picture after recording and video renderer and/or codec menu does not show up any particular codec name such as power dvd 5 just shows up the name codec which it always did, no way to get it to use specific codec that i can see, it could be defaulting to any codec on my system and i wouldnt know as its not saying in the progdvb menu and saying that i dont know what codecs are on my system either as a matter of interest though im sure that can be done. I would have thought just having the codec for power dvd 5 might help with this but doesnt programs like windows media player etc also use its own codecs anyway? this stretched picture on recording seems to be prevailent in all the software i have so far tried, has anyone got it running directly after recording booted up in say windows media player and have it playing properly in full screen mode? if so what is your setup?

Dear "Big Ted"
hi

Where can I find Marfi renderer? and How can I enabled it?

Another question is what is the original filter and filter graph of DVBviewer and how we can embed it in ProgDVB?

Best Regards,
Mahboub
