Dreambox ReStream 2.0.7

Profile picture for user theyosh

This week I released a new version of Dreambox ReStream. The biggest change is that when VLC 2.0 is used and iPhone streaming is enabled, that the iPhone stream is also used in the JW Player. Therefore VLC takes less CPU and there is no need to open port numbers in your firewall.

Another feature is support for single tuner enigma2 devices. They need a zap command before they can stream. This is implemented, but not yet fully tested. So any feedback on that is welcome.

Get here the new version.

For the LT Image for the Dreambox I created a small program to stream from your Linux server to your Dreambox. But I stopped this project in end 2007. After that, no updates or bug fixes. But a new girl has taken over the project!

So head over to http://www.teslina.com/dreambox/stream2dream-for-linux/ to get new updates and bug fixes!

Great work Sunci!

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.

Dreambox ReStream update 2.0.6

Profile picture for user theyosh

The previous update took almost one year. The next update only one day! :D

This new 2.0.6 version has a much better VLC usage. This will reduce the CPU usage with at least 50% compared to the 2.0.5 version. The 2.0.5 version was transcoding every output. Where the new version only transcode per stream profile. And with the introduction of iPhone streaming, the output duplicated. And therefore the CPU usage. Now this is fixed, and the CPU usage is dropped a lot.

After almost a year of no updates :( here is a new version. Between this version and the previous toke that more time because my AZBox had problems and could not use it. So there was no development possible. But the new features requests and bugs did came in, and most of them I could point out a temporarily fix. All those fixes should now be in the this new release. Go here for the download. Or read on for the full changelog.
