Thanks, Victor. So it was not possible to disable it... But here we have AltX to the rescue!
and he will add it.

Thanks, AltX. I think it is a very necessary feature so you can have AltDVB in Windowed Mode
without covering any other app just in case you need it.

Cheers.

If freezes when going directly to fullscreen (without Floating Window phase) will not be solved in my case please make in next version also directly way from Fullscreen to main window without Floating window (now context's menu both Restore and Floating Window lead to floating window) or even better make optional pop-up Channellist when mouse pointer touch i.e. right border, please.

Hello guys, so after a few tests with AltDVB with the Signal meter set at 0, I still get breakups
or artifacts with the CrazyCat library like the one you already saw in my screen capture and
video posted earlier.

I don't know what could be the problem here, but maybe a bit of lack of support for my card.
Hopefully this can be fixed, because it is a shame this happens, I like this viewer a lot, it is
fast, small, and has good picture quality.

Thanks. Cheers.

I propose you hint - use CrazyCat's library for switching your DISEqC on desired LNB and then Altx's library for watching ;)
To do this you have to uncheck PowerOff LNB on exit:
Image
or just buy one of modern TBS card (for example 5520SE USB switch my DISEqC ver1.0 with Altx's library well - btw DISEqC ver2.0 is switching very unstable in any SAT program).

Btw I liked AltDVB from first look at beginning of 21th century for speed, smooth and Russian language (i.e. channels names) support - now still speed but encrypted many channels are scanned as FTA:
Image
and despite Russian channel names still well even with ISO-6937 DVB Superset in DVB Scanner (despite I can't really set i.e. ISO 8859-05 Cyrillic - it jumps back to ISO-6937 DVB Superset when I press Scan selected) when I try to Search channel by typing Russian symbols in field over channels strange symbols are displayed and therefore filtering isn't working.

Go to Settings -> Scanner and select "Change FTA to PAY if CA found. This will fix marking. If this option is not selected, then AltDVB takes informations from SDT table (free_ca_mode) which is probably broadcasted incorrectly by broadcaster itself (set to "0" instead of "1").

To save the charset you have to edit transponder, so need to go to satellite scanner, and select Edit (or press F4) on desired transponder, change charset there and then - save. Without this - after changing charset, but pressing "Scan selected", the selected transponder have old encoding so, it is correctly recalled to ISO-6937 (because changes were not saved to transponder).

Selection in main scanner window is used for temporary scans (by button with magnifying glass above Signal test button).

This one seems to be a bug.

If disabling refreshing satellite signal quality didn't improve anything at all (when it should, because it did for other similar cases), maybe a workaround from VictorLS help to overcome this temporary, until solution will be available. Personally I don't have any device from DVBSky, lately these devices disappeared from European market, so hard to get any in reasonable price to try to play and search for workarounds...

Thanks again - I forgot to uncheck transponder in transponder list (I checked it to don't type frequency, polarization and symbol rate manually) of DVB Scanner to set 'magnifying glass' active ;)
It seems there isn't way to set charset for group of transponders - just for each transponder individually but it isn't great problem ;)

Thanks, I will try it. But to do this, I have to close the program and then reopen it and selecting
AltX's library, right?

Another thing about the forum. I'm not receiving notifications when a new post is written, even though
I have marked All type of notifications in the forum's settings and to be sent by E-mail. I only receive
notifications when a post of mine is quoted. How can I receive all?

I will give it a try to see if it works. I only have this card and need it every day so I can't send it to you for
tests. Hopefuly some fix is found soon.
