Fix for my Dreambox Ziggo Channel list

Ziggo have changed some channel frequencies to a new 256-QAM modulation. It toke for a while to figure out the changes, but I did notice that some channels that where using the 256-QAM modulation did not work anymore.

After a week of testing and reading, I found out that my code did not look at the QAM modulation at all. It turns out, that Ziggo was doing only 64-QAM, so my list was always working. Now the Dreambox Ziggo Channel list software is looking at the modulation and take that in account with the frequency information.

Updated the Ziggo dreambox channel list page

The Ziggo dreambox channel list page is update so that you now can choose between a channel list that contains both the SD and HD channels. This is handy for non HD receivers which cannot handle the HD stream.

And there is an option to replace the SD channel with the HD version. This means that you will need a HD capable receiver. The idea is that you don't need channels twice in the list. If you have a HD receiver and HD channels, you don't need the SD channels.

Dreambox ReStream 2.0.4

Another update of the Dreambox ReStream software. This version should fix the problem with a lot or boutiques. You need a CSS3 capable browser to get it working.

Another issue is that Windows 7 and 2008 have problems starting VLC when you zap. This problem should also being fixed, but I can't test it because I don't use Windows :P

Further more I have updated some libraries like jQuery, jQuery UI and jQuery mobile. This should also make the mobile web interface working again. And with a RTSP enabled phone, you can watch your TV on your mobile phone!

Dreambox ReStream 2.0 Final!

I proudly present Dreambox ReStream 2.0!

The final version is released after a long time of development. The biggest problem was to get the stream running on a mobile phone. Due to codec problems, the final version has dropped mobile support out of the box. It can be realized but needs some manual adjustments in the code.

The main features are now that we have multi bit rate. Default there are three bitrates. But it can be increased or decreased. More information how to change will be at the FAQ.
