Dreambox ReStream update 2.3.7

After almost 7 months there is a new update of Dreambox ReStream software. Due to the fact that we are currently happy with the software, the amount of updates is low. We think there is no need for updates except for bugs and or security related issues. If there are still wishes, please mail them to: dreambox [at] theyosh.nl

New version Dreambox ReStream (2.3.5)

A few months passed, and it was a bit quite. But lately some bugs arises, and we released an update that fixes those small issues.

There are a lot of library updates, and some bug fixes. So it is more a maintenance update. But there is just one nasty issue. The auto-updater was disabled in the past releases. We don't know why, but it was :( So to get this new version, you have to download it manually, and update your own version with the new code.

The setup will start automatically after upgrade.

Dreambox ReStream Live image update

A new version of the Dreambox ReStream Live image has been released. It took some time to update it, but finally it's here!

Dreambox ReStream version 2.3.3

After a few months of slow development, here is a new version of Dreambox ReStream. In this version we have tackled the slow EPG loading. Also the browser should not freeze anymore. The code is probably not final yet, but it should be stable enough to release.

A new feature is to disable HLS streaming, and only have a HTTP FLV stream. This only works on the Desktop version. So enabling it, will disable the HLS support for the mobile interface. This setting can only by changed in the Settings.class.php file. It is not in the setup wizard.

Dreambox ReStream 2.3.2 EMERGENCY RELEASE

Due to a javascript code issue, people had problems loading the page and watching a channel. The problem lays in the code that updates the EPG data. There are two parts of javascript that are involved here.

1. There is some javascript code that runs in the background fetching all the EPG data from the dreambox. These requests can take about 5 seconds for each channel. After loading the data, it is added to the javascript object. This will take some time and memory to handle. This part is now disabled.

Dreambox ReStream 2.3.1

After a month a new update. This update is an attempt to reduce the lagginess on Safari and Chrome browsers. It looks like that when there are lot of bouquets, it takes a long time to get the initial program information. So that is now limited to three bouquets. If there are more than 3 bouquets, the program data is retrieved per channel and not all at once.

I hope that this will solve the lagging issues.... If not, please do contact me to see if there is something else what could case it.
