    • Summary: Sometimes our serial library didn't write all data to the devices. This lead to strange behavior as commands were left incomplete. We changed the library to ensure that *all* data is written to the serial port.
    • Bug: 1313 Updated 422 control module to use TRMS code and not 3rd party library
    • Summary: We used to rely on a third-party library to control 422 devices, which lead to problems because it was difficult to tell what it was doing. We now have our own 422 library.
    • Bug: 1338 Timing and command syntax problems with SierraCM
    • Summary: Our control module wasn't waiting long enough for Sierra routers to respond. Additionally, some Sierra routers return a command syntax that we weren't expecting. Now, we give them more time to respond, and we parse the new command syntax correctly.

    • Bug: 636 "Not sent to hardware" Autopilot wording can be misleading
    • Summary: If you choose to not send events to hardware, a stronger message appears on the autopilot report screen reminding you that this was a effectively a "test" send--no events were sent to your devices.
    • Bug: 937 Autopilot does not clear out the event list when no schedule is sent
    • Summary: If autopilot had previously sent events to a device, and you later modify your schedule such that the device now has NO events, resending autopilot would not clear out the events for the device. This would cause the device to play, for example, even if the router never switched to it. Now, autopilot clears out all old events for all devices before sending new events.
    • Bug: 1051 New Control Module Host names are confusing
    • Summary: Instead of being named "localhost," new Control Module Hosts are named "New Control Module Host" so they aren't confused with existing hosts.

    • Summary: Autopilot now ignores any errant jump duration settings for video servers.
    • Bug: 1208 Autopilot improperly bumps shows on some devices if the runs are too close together
    • Summary: Autopilot now properly assigns devices when the lead time (wake time + jump time + load time) has a conflict and another device is available.
    • Bug: 1214 Batch functions ignore CGExempt settings
    • Summary: Batch functions now adhere to a show's CGExempt setting.
    • Bug: 1216 Removing shows from Schedule doesn't mark Schedule as modified
    • Summary: Removing shows from schedule now flags the Schedule as out-of-date, reminding you to send autopilot to commit the changes to the hardware

    • Summary: Previewing a DVD while importing causes severe performance problems. Clicking the "import" button now cancels the preview if it is running.
    • Bug: 918 Autopilot does not assign video server outputs properly
    • Summary: Autopilot now assignes Video Server outputs sequentially, rather than using Load Balancing.
    • Bug: 922 When making a new project, if there is no producer selected an error is thrown
    • Summary: Producer selection is now interpreted properly before sending the information to the database.
    • Bug: 923 Several areas of the public website need better error handling
    • Summary: Simple error handling was added. Work will continue on this issue in case 1065.
    • Bug: 924 Leftover VS1Helper.exe in the Control modules directory
    • Summary: Our build scripts weren't building the right set of projects.
    • Bug: 938 Communication between the TCD-IP and its RPs is extremely slow

    • Bug: 942 Autopatch BCS CM does not show up in the available Control Modules list
    • Summary: The CM wasn't properly added to our project files.
    • Bug: 943 Control Module threads throw an error when stopped
    • Summary: The event log would fill up with "Thread Aborted" errors whenever the Device Control Service was stopped.
    • Bug: 990 Spelling error on About screen

    • Bug: 1011 New Ross AVM Series Control Module
    • Summary: New Ross AVM Series Control Module
    • Bug: 1028 DVD Import doesn't handle end of segments in MPEG stream
    • Summary: The importer would crash if it hit an end of segment in the mpeg stream during multiplexing. It now ignores end of segments and continues to write data to the original output file.
    • Bug: 1053 Added VSX Server notification app to the system tray
    • Summary: The Status of the VSX is now shown in the system tray. This also fixes a problem with running DirectShow graphs under the Windows service account.
4.5.1 -- 11 issues -- Released: 10/2/2006
    • Bug: 530 Clearing a Show with no reels causes error
    • Summary: In the unlikely case where a Show contains zero reels, we no longer attempt to do work on the non-existant reels.
    • Bug: 551 Error occurs when listing runs for a Show scheduled on a non-existant Channel
    • Summary: If a show had been scheduled on a channel that no longer exists (after a "downgrade" to fewer channels), you would no longer be able to pull up that show record. If this scenario occurs now, the show record screen will be displayed, and the deleted channel will be listed as "UNKNOWN" in the list of runs.
    • Bug: 688 Sending an ErrorReport can generate a null-reference exception
    • Summary: Added better error-handling to our error-reporting pages. :-)
    • Bug: 741 Attempting to Send Autopilot for a parseable, but invalid date range cases SQL Server error

    • Bug: 861 Sql error when saving a Category with a single quote
    • Summary: Categories can now have single quotes.
    • Bug: 864 TCD/IP Control module now appends '-1' or 'r1' if it is missing from a force
    • Summary: Forcing a show to play from a TCD/IP requires you to enter the show ID and a reel number. Now, if you don't specify a reel number, the force assumes you meant reel 1.
    • Bug: 865 TCD/IP control module errors when forcing a TCD/RP device
    • Summary: Bug was causing a rogue PLAY command to be sent, which the RP couldn't understand, causing an error.
    • Bug: 872 Control Module Installer doesn't put Support Icon on Desktop
    • Summary: Support icon is now properly installed.
    • Bug: 909 Shortcut for uninstalling ControlModules exists in the Start menu
    • Summary: An old uninstall shortcut was sticking around in the Start menu. We removed it. Uninstall should now be done via the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel.
    • Bug: 2243 DSK bug text disappears when settings change (Compix)
    • Summary: The DSK screen wasn't being updated correctly when new data was present. Now, we update all regions of the screen.
    • Bug: 2263 Enseo network playback fails
    • Summary: When we made the device status more user-friendly (Case 1971), we wound up passing the wrong filename into the drivers. We now display a friendly name in the force menu AND pass the correct paths into the driver.

    • Bug: 352 Special chars in DVD Importer cause an error
    • Summary: Invalid characters are now removed from filenames before asking to save
    • Bug: 385 SonyDVP777CM can leave the serial port in-use when an error occurs
    • Summary: Now explicitly closes the port when an error occurs
    • Bug: 386 Leightronix not obeying LgxDisable2Way setting
    • Summary: Added missing code to some Lgx devices to disable 2way communication, and cleaned up the code for other Lgx devices

    • Bug: 667 DVDImport creates unusually large files when multiplexing certain DVDs
    • Summary: An incorrect parameter was being used in the multiplexer. Wasn't using VBR when it should have been.
    • Bug: 669 Live streaming servers can configure input devices
    • Summary: Live streaming servers can now use more than one device, configurable in the application configuration file.
    • Bug: 671 DVDImport can cause video and audio to lose sync

    • Bug: 706 Panasonic AGIA232TCCM stop/rewind commands are not sequenced properly
    • Summary: Occasionally, the control module fired a rewind before a stop, which causes subsequent runs to not play the correct show. Added locking to ensure that commands are sequenced properly.
    • Bug: 716 Cablecast Service crashes when attempting to unregister a non-existant TcpChannel
    • Summary: Added better error handling, and better checking to see if channels had already been unregistered.
    • Bug: 744 Increase ASP.Net timeout value in web.config file

4.4.2 -- 1 issues -- Released: 3/24/2006
    • Bug: 267 PrintSchedule doesn't take bumped showtimes into account
    • Summary: The PrintSchedule Extra was listing out the original start times for shows. If a show was bumped, the PrintSchedule still showed the original time, not the new bumped time.
4.4.1 -- 22 issues -- Released: 3/1/2006
    • Bug: 113 Add Run Total to Show record for multi-reel shows
    • Summary: If a show has multiple reels, a Total Run Time field appears, which caclulates the total time for all reels.
    • Bug: 118 Add PortSetting to the Control Module Set Logs
    • Summary: The PortSetting for a particular event now appears in the CMS log for that event. Note: All existing log files are not compatible with this version.
    • Bug: 127 Autopilot logic does not handle bulletin board types properly
    • Summary: If any manual event other than 'Take' was created for a BulletinBoard device, a Null Reference error occured when sending Autopilot. The WebUI now forces all manual events for BulletinBoard devices to be 'Take' only.
    • Bug: 143 Subset of a show search displays an incorrect number of results.
    • Summary: Subsetting a search result always displayed a result count equal to the result count of the initial search, not the count of the subsetted shows.
    • Bug: 147 CG Exempt field behaves erratically when editing a Show record via a different Location.
    • Summary: When editing a show from a different location (you will be asked if you want to switch to the correct location), the CGExempt and LiveIPExempt fields would always be unchecked, even if the show really is CGExempt or LiveIPExempt.
    • Bug: 149 NullReferenceException (Library.Shows.Edit.aspx.cs:Page_Load:140)
    • Summary: Session related. Fixed by adding session listing to autobug reports.
    • Bug: 150 UpdateSendInfo not handling database connections properly
    • Summary: Saving new from/to times during an autopilot send was opening too many connections, and not closing all of them afterward.
    • Bug: 155 DeviceFileKey SQL statement not escaping single quotes
    • Summary: A DeviceFileKey containing a single quote character would cause an error when being added to the EventTable duing an Autopilot send.
    • Bug: 162 Digital FileKeys based on a show title can contain invalid characters
    • Summary: Recording the first run of a show can fail if the show title contains filesystem "unsafe" characters. These characters are now removed before saving the file.
    • Bug: 179 Attempting to paste Record Schedule events before copying caused SQL error
    • Summary: Now checks to see if the schedule event "clipboard" is empty before trying to paste.
    • Bug: 182 Force menu not showing router status/error
    • Summary: In the Autopilot Force Menu, there was an error that if the routing switcher didn't return good status (i.e. device unavailable, invalid control module configuration), the device statuses would stop updating automatically. Now any problems with the routing switcher should be displayed at the top of the Force Menu page.
    • Bug: 183 Autopilot Force error when no CMSID is set
    • Summary: The Autopilot Force Menu now obeys the device type for a device. Previously if a device was set to "No Device" it would behave erratically, since it would be using whatever last "Primitive Format" was chosen, but the UI doesn't display what that is when "No Device" is selected.
    • Bug: 201 Subsetting a show search result will remove the sort order
    • Summary: A part of the search wasn't being set correctly, so the action of subsetting a search would reset the sort order.
    • Bug: 206 Setting a Device to BulletinBoard keeps any CMSID previously set for that Device
    • Summary: When a device's type gets switched to BulletinBoard, the old CMS would still be active for the device, leading to strange behavior elsewhere (e.g., the force menu allowed you to send a "Play" command to a CG). Now, when chaning a device to BulletinBoard, the CMS for that device is removed.
    • Bug: 212 Shows can be pre-assigned to record-only devices.
    • Summary: Since a record-only device can never playback a show, it makes no sense to preassign a show to be played from that device. The list of devices that a show can be pre-assigned to now omits any record-only devices.
    • Bug: 221 Force Menu status w/ error kills similar device status
    • Summary: The Autopilot Force Menu was reporting the same error for any devices using the same CMSID. This was fixed, so if you have two of the same devices controlled by the same control module (i.e. they're on different serial ports) they will report their correct status.
    • Bug: 222 Conflict Checking in Manual Events
    • Summary: Manual Events should be allowed to bypass the strict conflict checking used by Autpilot. This allows Cablecast to do things it normally wouldn't do, like play a show at the same time on two channels from a single deck.
    • Bug: 232 Compact force menu when routing matrix is over 16 outputs
    • Summary: If the router for a channel has more than 16 outputs, a smaller force menu is displayed. Modifying the 'ForceMenuMaxInputs' value in the Web.config fill will change the number of outputs needed before switching to the smaller force menu.
    • Bug: 235 Time-synching to control modules fails
    • Summary: If the Cablecast Service's connection to the database failed, it would stop sending time sync commands to the Control Modules until the service was restarted.
    • Bug: 238 Record Channel Event Device Assignment Order
    • Summary: When setting up a new record event, the source/destination lists are now ordered by Input/Output number instead of DeviceID.
    • Bug: 244 Force menu only allows you to override first channel
    • Summary: Only the first channel was overridable in the force menu. If the first channel was a Preview channel, it could be overridden as well. Now, all non-preview channels can be overriden. (Channels using Leightronix routers cannot be overridden.)
    • Bug: 252 Report tables don't maintain column headers across page breaks when printed
    • Summary: If a details section spills across multiple pages, the table header will be reprinted at the top of the new page.
