NOTE 1: If you intend to use the built-in ARGUS TV Recorder, and MediaPortal TV server is installed on the same machine, make sure you stop and disable the TVService windows service so your cards are actually free to be used by ARGUS. Or uninstall MediaPortal TV server.

NOTE 2: If you intend to use MediaPortal TV server as recorder it is recommended to use the final 1.5.0 release!

!! Please read the installation manual as it contains IMPORTANT information you need to read before you start installing !!

This release of ARGUS TV contains a number of fixes and performance improvements.
  • The Scheduler is significantly faster when dealing with multiple complex schedules.
  • EPG parsing in the Recorder has been optimized to use a lot less CPU.
  • The Recorder has much better TBS card support.
  • All consoles now support high-DPI displays (aka Retina).
  • Revamped REST api that is more RESTful.
  • Ready for XBMC Gotham and supports MediaPortal 1.5 out of the box.

Full release notes of the changes since 2.1:
  • Scheduler: implemented smarter caching when calculating upcoming programs - should speed things up with a lot of complex schedules.
  • Scheduler: revamped the REST api to be more RESTful (still supports the old api for backwards compatibility).
  • Scheduler: added %%CHANNELTYPE%% format.
  • Scheduler: console is now DPI-aware.
  • Scheduler: added new configuration setting to specify the e-mail sender (default is the first address in the to-list).
  • Scheduler: when changing the post-record of an already active recording, the recording will now correctly run until the new end-time.
  • Scheduler: hitting the Delete key in the Recorder Programs panel now acts the same as picking Delete from the popup menu.
