Problems with new version of DVBLink Viewer

I just installed the new version of the Viewer app (Windows). I can't get it to work. The previous version did work.

What is not working?
- Guide opens, channel logo's are presented, but starting Live TV shows nothing (no black screen, just the guide)
- I can't see any IP number (see screenshot)
- It opens windowed and I can't move it around the desktop by grabbing the topbar
- the control options of the window are presented wrong

What I did?
- I firstly installed using the update bat
- after that I tried uninstalling and installing again
- I've played with scaling (using a 4k screen on Windows 10)

Hope someone can help

For any one having this problem too: apparantly there is an update for the server too. That solved it.

The DVBLink Viewer player frontend never showed this behavior that it screwed up the interface and that it needed the latest build of the DVBLink Server to work properly.

DVBLink Viewer Player frontend 1.0.0 build1020 and 1030 still work without braking the interface and plays every channel, no matter which DVBLink server version is installed, so it is definitely a bug in the new version.

Server installation must be updated as well for new DVBLink Player/Viewer to work properly.

I found out the hard way. Maybe it is an idea to mention it somewhere?

BTW, on the download page the version numbers aren't up to date. The viewer still is on version 6.0. The file isn't.

Easy answer, we already noticed that...

I hope it is fixed in the next release, because I can't urge my family to update their DVBLink Server installs, because we share different TV packages :!:

If you do have the DVBLink server V6.x then just make an upgrade of the server, all packages will stay on like that.
And in any case the backup should be done:

Thanks, but I was talking about DVBLink server installs on different geographical locations, like my brothers house, my uncle's house etc. and on different platforms.

Now I just skip this update, until I find a workaround or wait for the next update where hopefully DVBlogic addresses this issue.

DVBLogic fails to recognize our problems (: We are the father, son, nephew, friend etc that install (and maintain) this software with others with little or none computer skills. When updates are needed, the hopefull eyes are pointed to us. So failsafe updates are what we need.
