GNOME DVB Daemon 0.1.2 released

A little bit more than a month after the last release I bring you GNOME DVB Daemon 0.1.2. You can download it at

It mainly fixes numerous bugs and memory leaks. Therefore, scanning for channels works much better now. However, I didn’t manage to reproduce exactly the same results as dvb-apps’ scan does, yet. For some still unknown reason some SI tables get lost on the way from the hardware device to the scanner.

All information is now stored in Sqlite databases. Therefore, dvb-daemon doesn’t depend on gconf anymore. Unfortunately, you have to setup your cards and schedule your timers again.

In addition, I reworked the program guide. It looks much nicer now.

For the next release I concentrate on improving the existing UIs to manage your recordings and schedule new ones. Most likely I’m going to integrate into and extend the functionality of the Totem plugin.

Last but not least, I’m trying to get my gst-rtsp-server branch merged back into the main branch.
