- Solved bug: Wrong track title was shown in case a track was skipped (e.g. bad audio).
- Added scheduler command for database update ("command=ud" - will force the SIR to get the configurations from the database ADP/channelservice/own webfile)
- Added scheduler command for software update ("command=uf" - will force the SIR to perform a software check and when software update is required...start the update).
- Added scheduler command to allow the update of the playlist files only - no tracks will be updated ("command=uo").
- The SIR will disconnect from the remote server, if it does not get a disconnect from the server within a timeout interval.
- Added a field '[CRD]' to the monitor log message, to indicate whether a card is present in the device or not.
- Special message logs are sent to the remote server at the start/finish of the playlist update and when schedule update is performed.
[V1.01 B08] --- (14 January 2009)
!!! - When decrypting audio, the filename is always converted to lowercase. Encrypted files "MUST" be generated with SCS version 1.1.0.
- Solved bug: Bad audio state was not handled properly when playing from card.
- Solved bug: (SAF) When playlist update would startswhile the SIR was ON and the network configuration would fail caused the SIR to "stuck" in an unhandled state.
- Solved bug: (SAF) When playlist update would startswhile the SIR was ON and the SIR was configured in static caused the SIR to "stuck" in an unhandled state.
- Solved bug: (SAF) Playlist update would stop when certain 'x.mtd' file was not present on the card; we now look at the playlist (*.pls).
- Solved bug: (SAF) SIR would crash when a filename longer than the maximum allowed filename length (50) was present used.
[V1.01 B07] --- (7 January 2009)
- Increased the available heap.
- Improved read (card) performance. Bitrates up to 224kbps are now supported properly.
- "dc" (and "rc") tasks will not break the playlist update.
- Solved bug: Memory leak in the RC module.
[V1.01 B06] --- (5 January 2009)
- Remote monitoring and control was added. On a successful connection with the server the SIR will send a status log. While connected to the server it is possible to send commands to the SIR
+ The remote server URL can be configured from STP using the command "rcs 1" (e.g. rcs 1 192.168.0.171:1111), or via database update (e.g. RCUrl="192.168.0.171:1111").
+ The interval (in minutes) how often the SIR will connect to the server can be configured from STP using the command "rcs 2" (e.g. rcs 2 60), or via database update (e.g. RCInterval="1").
- Added clean card "cc" command; the tracks that are not used by any of the playlists will be deleted.
- Added erase card "ec" command; all playlists/tracks will be deleted.
- Solved bug: Wrong RTC setup (for december).
- Solved bug: st command always sets time to 01/01/2009 (was related to RTC).
- Solved bug: "Unable to start playlist update" (was related to RTC).
[V1.01 B05] --- (12 December 2008)
- The free space on the card is now shown in kBytes.
- The SIR will recount the on-card playlists after a playlist update finishes.
- Fixed: start playing track "0" in fallback when RTC was not initialized.
- (SAF) For long filenames, the SIR will now try up to 1000 combinations when creating a unique DOS-name.
- Now it is possible to check whether the on-board decryption key is still the same(intact) as when it was uploaded.
- Added implementation for CustomerZero (password protecting the settings of the device).
- Fixed: When in fallback and the stream is back, start playing immediatly; do not update database/scheduler, do not clear audio buffer.
[V1.01 B04] --- (5 November 2008)
- Writing to SDHC cards works now properly
- Mounting a MMC card now works.
- Solved bug (encryption) - Wrong calculation of the hash value starting from the second entry.
- Solved bug (encryption) - Switching between playlists of encrypted entries was failing.
- Solved bug (encryption) - Decryption key was being corrupted - hickups and wrong spee in audio.
- Improved Streamit decryption algorythm. Now bitrates up to 128kbps are supported.
- Song counter (on LCD) now count all the songs that are processed while updating a playlist.
- Improved long filename support... With long we refer to filenames longer than 8.3.
- !!! All cards used for SAF before must be formatted. !!!
- The play playlist(pp) task was not working properly. Now is fixed...
- Added scheduler task for playing a station (ps), with parameter the ID of station to be played.
- It is possible to start scheduler tasks immediately by sending commands from STP ('us','up','pp n','ps n','pw n' with n being the parameter value).
- Added command (STP only, not a scheduler command) to enable/disable scheduler ('sen n', with n being 0 for disable and 1 for enable).
- Fixed - Persisting text "connecting" on display when no card or no playlists are present
- Fixed - When there are no channels in the device, the behaviour should be improved
- The last played playlist/song is now always remembered on power on/off and Alt key-pressed.
- When powering the SIR on or pressing the ALT key to start playing from the card, the "Last-Played-Song+1" from the "Last-Played-Playlist" with start (when valid).
- In case the internet stream is gone and the SIR is forced into the fallback situation, the playlist that is choosen to play
from should be the of same genre as the internet stream. This means that the SIR must use the playlist on the card that has the
same ID as the station that was played. In case the playlist with the particular ID doesn't exist on the card, the SIR
will start playing from playlist 1.
- In case of fallback, we start with a random song...
- When a "play playlist" is started from the scheduler ('pp' command) the playlist (n.pls) will be played starting from the first entry.
- Modified some log messages...playlists and station ID's always start from 1 (not from 0).
- Number of files possible to create in the root folder of a FAT32 formatted card; during SAF,is not limited anymore.
- Error handling during a playlist update is now consistent.
- When the download of a song during SAF did not end succesfully, the (not-complete) song will be deleted.
- Removing a card while playing from it will reset the last-played-playlist. When the card is re-inserted the user is asked to choose the playlist.
- Spaces in the "filename" are now supported even in playlist update (SAF) files.
[V1.01 B02] --- (17 September 2008)
- Treble/Bas several bugs solved.
- Some issues with database connection of Scheduler and Playlist Update solved.
- Database update is also done in case of card operation. This is required, because database update also can contain scheduler URL etc.
- The steps in the card update process are displayed now.
- Some hanging problems are solved.
- We are able to interrupt the playlist/card update process now, for example to start playing a playlist.
- Scheduler command has been added to synchronize the clock of the SIR with the server.
- Repeating tasks are stored also when the date is before the current date of the SIR.
[V1.01 B01] --- (5 September 2008)
- Keylock works now
- Treble/Bas behaviour improved/corrected
- First test-release Store & Forward (SAF)
- Software update URL can be changed from database now: IspUdUrl="url"
- Software update can be enabled/disabled from database now: SwUdEnable=0 (off) SwUdEnable=1 (on)
- Scheduler URL can be changed from database now: SchedUrl="url"
- Playlist Update URL can be changed from database now: SafUrl="url"
- Uses modified version of NutOS Phat-filesystem
- Supports reading/writing of MMC/SD/SDHC cards
- Software update strategy improved. On the Streamit update server, only released software versions will be placed.
- In previous versions, the wizard started after every software update. Now the wizard only will start if necessary.
=== Project name changed to cej for SIR100/SIR120/SIR120PRO, due to many changes (store & forward) to come
=== cei now only is for SIR80
[cei V1.0] --- (21 August 2008)
- Software is stable - make release 1.0
[cei V0.05 B16] --- (23 June 2008)
- Fixed bug (introduced in B14): Content-type for ASX playlist was not recognized.
[cei V0.05 B15] --- (14 May 2008)
- changed password for basic authentication to "admin".
- Changed WMA parser, padding length is now written in 1 byte.
- "Content-Type: "audio/x-ms-asf" is also considered as an asx playlist.
- Using a new version of the wma patch (SIR100 only).
- Reduced the maximum number of retries when getting bad responses to 3 (was 5).
- Removed some "too technical" log messages.
- Added HTTP proxy support. Only possible to configure via STPv2.0.2 or higher.
- Added OggVorbis (merged CP/Ogg) patch (SIR120/SIR120PRO only).
- VS patches are now loaded with VsPlayerReset() and not VsPlayerKick().
Known issues ([V1.28]:
- When playing a laylist at random, the ticker application will send <unknown> as the next song to be played.
- The SIR has problems with writing files larger then 1MB on "Memorex" 2G SD.Different issues (with writing)
have been noticed for other cards as well. Streamit recommends that Transcend SDHC cards are used to ensure reliable SAF.
- Parsing a parameter from a file goes wrong if this is the "last" line in the file.
- When a scheduled task "fails" than we should handle it depending on the severity of the fault.
* If errors occur while carrying out a task, these errors should be reported to a server.
- When we are in a fallback situation, we are playing from the card and in the background, we are polling if the stream is back again. In case the stream is back, we should not abort the song that is playing from the card immeadiatly, but finish the song before returning to the internet stream.
