    20.0.53 (1/8/2015)

    1. NEW: Theater View artist backdrops load from the entire list of artists for a track instead of only the first artist.

    3. Changed: The jriver namespace fields from jr: to jriver: to match the previous use of presenting the access key. A side effect of this is that all builds in use must be greater than 20.0.52 to use the volume leveling feature(this is only useful on a MC renderer from a MC server NOT doing conversion).
    4. Changed: The spacebar isn't translated as play / pause when a list control has the focus.

  • 19.0.42 (9/19/2013)
    1. Fixed: Theater View could crash in rare cases.

  • Release Date: Sep 12, 2013
  • 19.0.38 (9/10/2013)
    1. Fixed: The installer would always register the 64-bit shell extensions, leading to cases where shell extensions could show in Explorer when the option was off in MC (manually turn on, OK out of options, then turn off, and OK out of options to fix).

    1. Fixed: Podcasting could cause the user interface to be sluggish in some cases when first starting the program.

    7. Fixed: When connecting to a library that required a password, the program could dead-lock in some cases.
    8. Fixed: Entering a 'Q' value of over 1.0 for a shelf filter with Parametric Equalizer would cause crackling during output.

    5. Fixed: Child wizard dialogs, like used in Options > Remote Control, weren't supporting the OK and Cancel buttons properly in some cases.

    8. Changed: Updated the French language translation (thanks rlebrette).
    9. Fixed: If a connection to a Library Server was sporadic, it could lead to cases where a link to external cover art could be lost.
    10. Fixed: Mono ALAC files were not being parsed or played correctly.
    11. Fixed: DLNA slideshow push. The transition from first to second image in a playlist of images was not happening on the timer properly. This change may also make it more likely to work on devices that were having trouble with the slideshow mode.

  • Release Date: May 15, 2013

    1. Fixed: Audio Path was not correctly reporting the output bitdepth in some cases due to the new audio bitdepth system.

    4. Changed: ASIO supports encoding the output as AC3 using DSP Studio > Output Format (requires downstream AC3 decoder or you will hear white noise).
    5. Fixed: When scanning for Set Top Box channels, cable channels 3 and 4 were not presented as possible channels on which the set top box fed signal to capture device.
  • 18.0.182 (5/10/2013)
    1. Fixed: ASIO playback of PCM was not working in build 181.

    3. Fixed: Some m4a and alac files would not import or play because of a mismatched sample count in the mp4 STTS header. We now ignore this error since it shouldn't impact playback performance.
    4. NEW: DLNA image slideshow when pushing an image playlist to a renderer. Follows slideshow logic that MC uses including the image duration in Options->Images->Slide Show Duration.
Version 18.0.180
  • Release Date: May 10, 2013

    7. Fixed: If a large Photoshop image failed to load, it could cause a crash.
    8. Faster: Decoding a PSD image saved as RGB (8-bit or 16-bit color) is much faster.

    1. NEW: Added Theater View support for SHOUTcast (add using Options > Theater View > Add...) (it's recommended that you reset file info templates for the best experience using Options > Theater View > Customize file info panel... > Manage... > Reset All Templates To Default).
    2. Fixed: Focus could shift unexpectedly to the list when navigating some rollers in Theater View with build 176.
    3. Changed: Added a new stock field 'Popularity' (string that supports flexible values; web radio uses it to put something like '3123 listeners' in).
    4. Fixed: The Theater View file info template option to 'Hide when empty' was not working for some fields like number of plays that showed 'never played' when empty.
    5. Changed: Theater View's Playing Now shows artist backdrops when playing web radio stations that contain ICY metadata.

  • 18.0.176 (4/29/2013)
    1. Changed: When there's a 3d drawing error, the error text will not appear for a little while so that coming out of madVR exclusive, which could require a reload of a 3d device, will look cleaner.
    2. Changed: If Theater View fails to load and reloads, it will stop trying to reload after 3 reloads in 30 seconds (to avoid looping forever if something isn't working).
    3. Changed: Red October will use DXVA Copy Back with nVidia hardware when possible instead of CUVID when using madVR ( http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=80258.0 ).

    1. NEW: ASIO output supports DSD bitstreaming using DoP.
    2. Fixed: Some videos during conversion would not detect the end of stream properly, so could stop a few seconds early.
    3. Changed: Removed the safety valve in the video converter that would stop a conversion if it stalled for too long (Red October should make it unnecessary, and it's possible the valve triggered in cases where it shouldn't).
    4. Changed: When multiple optical media disks are present, Theater View now shows the first one available rather than none.
    5. Fixed: Queued files for a data disc burn could not be seen because "Show files in subfolders" button was not available.

    8. Fixed: Crash could occur when clicking the "Rip Tracks" button in the CD header view.
    9. Changed: When ripping audio from multiple drives, the 'Details' button in the Action Window jumps to the first drive instead of showing an overview view for all drives (which didn't have the same functionality so could be a little confusing).

  • Release Date: Apr 27, 2013
  • 18.0.174 (4/25/2013)
    1. Fixed: The progress shown for an individual video file during conversion was not displaying correctly.

    5. Fixed: On the Import wizard, clicking cancel when it recommended not using an empty auto-import folder list would leave the wizard in a strange state.
    6. Changed: Updated German language file (thanks Bytestar).
  • 18.0.173 (4/24/2013)
    1. Fixed: Pressing Pause button while television was playing in non-time-shifting mode put television in partially paused state (audio continued to play while video was paused).
    2. Fixed: CUE files that contained URLs in comments could lead to a crash.
    3. Changed: When saving a JPEG with a high quality (90 or higher quality, which is used for cover art saving), no chrominance subsampling will be used.
    4. Fixed: Horizontal scrolling in the Playing Now > Overview view was not working nicely.
    5. Fixed: Long M4A files (over 10 hours) could show as 'Live' or with the wrong or empty duration in the library.

  • 18.0.172 (4/22/2013)
    1. Fixed: The launcher didn't have the full program name embedded in it, so file associations could show they were associated with "Media" instead of "JRiver Media Center 18".
    2. Fixed: If a DLNA device requested metadata for a file that's no longer in the library (or never was in the library), it could crash.
    3. Changed: When converting a video file, aggregates with names like 'Index.bdmv' and 'Video_TS.vob' will use the name field for building the new filename instead of preserving the existing filename.
    4. Changed: Video conversion could stop early if the encoder paused for a while; now it waits much longer before deciding something went wrong.
Version 18.0.171
  • Release Date: Apr 21, 2013
  • 18.0.171 (4/19/2013)

    7. Fixed: In some cases, the row of times at the top of the Theater View television guide could stop updating as you scrolled right.

    13. Changed: Television engine ignores Stop request if it has not finished starting to play a channel.
    14. Changed: If the program is configured to use a cover art folder that is not available or writable, the default cover art folder will be used for that run of the program (the same validation runs when setting a folder and won't allow you to set a non-writable folder).
    15. Changed: If the program is configured to save art next to files, it will nicely handle cases when sidecar artwork is not writable on the file system (by falling back to the cover art folder).
    16. Changed: DLNA: Allow playlist manipulation in conjunction with setNextAVTransportURI.

    7. Fixed: When a CUE file pointed to a missing WAV file, it would lead to problems.
    8. Fixed: MC passed some incorrect parameters to some OpenCable television devices.

    5. Changed: Text subtitles use a slightly smaller default size (size is customizable in Options > Video).
    6. Changed: SSA subtitles honor the font size specified in the SSA style block more exactly.
    7. Changed: When text is both outlined and drop shadowed, it will look better.
    8. Fixed: SSDP servers were not working properly in 18.0.167.
    9. Changed: Added '10 channels' as a possible output mode in DSP Studio > Output Format.
    10. Fixed: Stopping video playback that was using a third-party COM-based playback engine could cause problems.
    11. NEW: Holding down the Shift key while double-clicking an audio track will start Play Doctor playback with that track (equivalent to right-click > More Play Options > Play (with Play Doctor)).
    12. Changed: Tuned some Theater View margins and sizing so that the information below the television guide is exactly large enough for a title and two lines of description.
    13. Changed: When picking a program in the future or past from the television guide in Theater View, the option to 'Watch Channel Live' will be available (the option is simply called 'Watch' if the program will be on within 15 minutes).
    14. Fixed: A few command line launcher commands were not working properly.
    15. Fixed: Removing and then adding columns while the column right click menu was open could put the new columns in the wrong spot.
    16. Fixed: Windows 7 taskbar button playback controls would sometimes not show up.
  • 18.0.167 (4/10/2013)
    1. Changed: Removed 'Level' tool from DSP Studio > Room Correction. Please use the newer Audio Tools > Advanced Tools > Audio Calibration... > Volume calibration to perform calibration.
    2. Changed: The 'Tone' tool in DSP Studio > Room Correction uses instrument grade -20dB narrow band pink noise instead of full spectrum pink noise.
    3. NEW: Theater View television guide has a 'To Be Recorded' view (requires resetting Theater View views in Options > Theater View > Reset!...).
