The new version is ready to download:

Main improvements over the v0.4c

• We can now receive DVB-S and DVB-S2 en QPSK et 8PSK
• We can decode video codecs : Mpeg2, H264 and H265
• More accurate values for MER and power
• Some little bugs fixed

• Useful for a PIPO,
o A click on vu-meter « MER/SN » changes standard/Expert mode
o A click on vu-meter « RF Pw » switches the AutoPID button
o A click on vu-meter « TimingLock » changes the DVB mode(DVB- S, S2, Auto)
o A click on vu-meter « CarrierLock » asks a new lock (= « 1search »)
o In standard mode, un click on thea video changes the display format ( = Echap)

• There are new FEC values for DVB S2

• We can preset the BBgain value and the lowSR/highSR mode

==> The file Minitioune.ini is now different with the new FEC values and the new possibility to preset BBgain and LowSR.

==> There is a new file « H265 decod.grf » for H265 decoding.

Thank you very much for this new version of Minitioune, which is working very well. I have a request concerning the configuration file. Is it possible to provide a line to select the DVB Mode? We are using Minitioune for an experimental 146.5MHz input to repeater GB3ZZ and when we remotely reboot the computer, we need it to start with everything correctly set because no one is there to make changes. I would like to set DVB mode to Auto because we would like to compare DVB-S and DVB-S2 modes.
Kind regards Shaun G8VPG.
