This new version refreshes the look of the Live TV guide to make it more modern and fit the more "material" design of the device. All the same great functionality is still there - just in a new and easier to read package.


Other Enhancements and Fixes


In addition to the above, this new version of the apps include the following other enhancements and fixes:

  • More in-playback controls - change quality, refresh rate (on supported hardware) and other settings during playback
  • More stream copy and less transcoding
  • Convert DTS to DD on systems that don't support DTS
  • Record or cancel a program from the playback OSD
  • General bug fixes and stability improvements
