---[ Fix (DE) ]---[ 2005-10-10 ]---

This is a temporary fix for all users in Germany
(and possibly others?). Due to a faulty way of
parsing the channel name, the channel names
wouldn't show in the channel column in mtvg when
using the german tv_today-grabber. Replace the
files at [mtvg.sf.net/degrab] and recompile mtvg,
that should do the trick! Sorry about the

---[ v5.7.8 ]---[ 2005-07-10 ]---

In this release the reminder dialogue (which
alerts the user when a favourite show starts) has
been updated. Now there is a progress bar showing
how much of the show that has passed. The dialogue
auto-closes when the show ends (remaining
countdown). Finally, it is now possible to check
out the details of the show right in the reminder
