For those interested in AltDVB player,version 2.4 has been released,which has many interesting options and features.
Below is a changelog of what this version offers.
I did some tests for MIS and PLP streams and I must say that it is amazing how accurate and fast it searches and lock transponders with such streams.
I am now posting only scanning and locking MIS(5W) and PLP(54.9E) streams,but there are many more things to find in this version.
The AltDVB 2.4 version is free and can be downloaded from here.https://www.altx.ro/forum/viewtopic....49a5fcff4#p346l


- hardware interface: maximum devices extended from 8 to 64
- decapsulation of T2-MI streams
- LAN streaming, with remote control for VLC 3.x and MPC-HC
- unicode text for channel name, provider, EPG events. Characters decoding as described in ETSI-EN-300-468 (v1.16.1), using internal tables for char translation of ISO-6937 and ISO-8859-05..ISO-8859-15 and windows CodePages 20949,20936 for KS-X-1001 (Korean),GB-2312 (Simplified Chinese)
- channel's internal structure was changed to allow max 32 ES, 32 CA and channel/provider name up to 127 chars (UTF8).File extension was changed from *.adcl to *.adch
- screenshots button + hotkeys ([CTRL+S]=Current window, [CTRL+SHIFT+S]=Video window, [CTRL+ALT+S]= All app windows)
Other changes:
- added quick LOF settings for Ka Band, C Band Extended & X Band
- allow plugins to alter TS packets (eg. Pow..Vu E m u)
- option to select frequency units KHz/MHz (see Settings->General)
- added detection of stream type 0x32 = VVC (no parsing/demuxing yet)
- option to set default character set per transponder. Default: ISO-6937 DVB Superset
- the buttons with key from main window are hidden if no plugins loaded and enabled
- option: Don't decrypt recorded channel
- save composition and ancillary page from subtitling descriptor
- device selector is now vertically resizable & remember lists height
- satellites list: minor GUI changes, font changed
Scanner window:
- the columns in transponders list can be hidden (right-click on columns header)
- window remembers width/height and hidden TP list columns
- fixed non-working menu item "Select TP with scan errors"
- text search in the transponders list (visible columns only)
- added some keyboard shortcuts to transponders list + mouse action [Ctrl+LeftClick] for check/uncheck
Scan result (update button from scanner)
- window is now resizable and remembers dimensions
- window has incorporated channel differences
- detailed differences report for ES and CA lists
- save differences report to .csv file
Channels tree:
- width of info column is adjusted based on content displayed
- not using fixed font for root/group nodes
- option to show SID into info column
- search text also search in group nodes caption
- automatically resize short event text box to fit content
- bottom panel (short & extended event descriptor) is resizable
- parse and display extended event items
About T2-MI: if you don't know the PID try to scan the transponder without decapsulation and check for channel with suggestive name or having elementary stream of type T2MI. Once the PID is known/guessed change decap to T2-MI, set the PID and retune transponder. Now open T2-MI status window and see if packets counter is increasing. If you receive good packets, without CRC errors, the PLP list should be populated. Select one, then rescan transponder for available channels on selected PLP. For multiple PLPs, just duplicate the transponder and change the PLP value.
Some hints for LAN streaming:
* control of MPC-HC works only after modifying the hotkeys for "Close" to "C" (default is Ctrl-C) and for "Play" to "P" (default is none) , see MPC-HC: [Options]->[Player]->[Keys]
* a multicast IP address is mandatory if you want to stream simultaneously to multiple applications
* you can close/disable main video without affecting streaming
I've added a setting for default charset set per transponder. Some providers are using non-default (ISO-6937) encoding for channel names and EPG without proper signaling of character table. If the text is unreadable or has missing diacritics you know what the problem is [Blocked Image: https://www.altx.ro/forum/images/smi...n_e_smile.gif] Try to guess the encoding and rescan the transponder !
Example: Greek package from HotBird 12169,H. The texts are encoded using ISO-8859-07.
As you can see in changelog above, the channels file structure was changed to make space for more elementary streams and longer names.
If you want to keep your v2.3 channels please use Mr.Orbita's conversion tool from here https://mr-orbita.pl/altdvb/ADCLtoADCH_v1.0.zip
Other binaries included in the arhive:

* latest nightly build of LAV Filters ( https://files.1f0.de/lavf/nightly/

* win32 build of OpenSSL 1.0.2u https://indy.fulgan.com/SSL/
Thank you Mr.Orbita for all your support, improvements ideas and thorough testing !

I haven't seen your post.If I knew I'd only post screenshots of the new version.But if I think about it better,then it is no problem that the same news was posted about AltDVB,because the player deserves to be known,but especially used
