Improvements to two-way IP control of TheaterTek. CQC and Cinemar should have drivers available to support this.
Latest nVidia decoders, build 223.
New network browsing. TheaterTek now scans all network resources for available network shares rather than relying on the Microsoft My Network Places icons, which were unreliable. As a result, a significant number of shared folders can appear for a larger network. To avoid this, if you want a network share to show up under the Network Icon on the TT file browser, you MUST place a dummy file called 'include.tt' in the root of the network share. This identifies the share as containing files for TheaterTek.
Enhanced playlists and trailer capability. Trailers are defined by placing a playlist file called 'trailers.plt' in the Data folder inside TheaterTek. A new dropdown on the General tab allows you to specify when trailers are played back.
