    Recognizing that you are unlikely to fall for any of our crazy marketing stunts, and that there may not be anything you care about in the changes we've made, here's what was new in the last stupid update (MC21):


    Here is the complete list through 21.0.84:

    stream ID and audio and video PIDs.  One can now specify which audio
    stream to be played by default by editing the audio PID on the channel.

    Selecting this from the filter box causes only the programs on your
    favorite channels to be displayed.
    NEW: Television gets its own logging in addition to regular log files.
    Important TV related (mostly TV recording) messages are logged in the TV
    logs.  The logs can be displayed in Standard Television view (just
    select "TV Logs" in the filter box).
    NEW: One can access "Show status" on standard television view without
    having to go into TV Options > Advanced.  It can be selected in the
    Filter box.

    NEW: Preliminary support for Sat>IP television devices.  Work in

    I'm not impressed, LOL!  Every time I did an upgrade in the past, nothing but problems!
    If it ain't broke don't fix it, is my advice!  And no support for Jplay, what a joke!
  3. jarrett
    JPlay is the joke. I know it bothers people that perfect audio quality cannot be improved on.
  4. korzena
    Especially its price! But maybe if it's not expensive enough, people wouldn't appreciate the 'improvement' :wink:
