Adding external decoders is very complicated without native code support on GTV.
That's why I can not add Airplay of music content. It requires decoding of Apple Lossless which is laggy in Java.

Hey your app is great...i was searching for an app like it.

I'd like to ask if there is any special detail for Greek .srt subtitles....i've tried UTF-8 but subtitles appear with symbols....

Also subtitles play for 2-3 sentences and then stop....

Any thoughts please

You need to setup correct subtitle encoding in player's preferences.
If you don't know exact encoding, please refer to this list http://a4esl.org/c/charset.html
and just try all variants with "Greek" in description. ;)

Features for the next version 0.7 (it takes me longer than I thought):
- Selection of subtitle vertical position (now subtitles are customizable by color, size and vertical position!)
- Support for external mp3/mka/m4a soundtrack files. You have video from one file and audio from another one. Unfortunately, it is not possible to switch between internal and external soundtrack on-fly. The movie is always restarted. It is experimental. Could be sync problems.
- "Watched state sign". It was asked lots of times. If you use Plex, you've seen those circles showing that you watched some_part/all movie already. It takes me some time to implement this because additional database with url-percent data should be kept inside GTVBox app and syncronized with directory listing.
Suggestions are still welcome for this feature implementation.

- New playback infobar design... hm... don't promise this one...

- Bugs fixed, more bugs introduced as always.

GTVBox Video Player v.0.7 is released!

- You can now select default vertical position of subtitles using K/M keys.

- GTVBox now marks a movie (if it is longer then 10 min) if you already watched it.
There are 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% marks. You can also mark/unmark a file by yourself with longclick context menu.

- I've noticed that most Mediacenters have a clock at the corner.
Now GTVBox have it too. It is also calculates expected time of movie end (like current time + last till the end).

- External soundtrack (Experimental!).
It should be a file in m4a (recommended for AAC) or mka (recommended for AC3) container with the same name placed in the same directory (like subtitles). I can not support MP3 for now, because Android has a common problem when seeking over VBR MP3.
To switch to external soundtrack press E. The movie will be restarted if external sound is found. Use R/T keys to fix sync time.
If you have a movie with DTS soundtrack, which your Logitech Revue can not play, just extract it, convert to AC3 and mux to mka format (over ffmpeg for ex.).

- HTTP streaming.
Mostly for IceStream users.


- Fixed subtitle outline saving.
- Fixed some crash reports.

MCD2000,

What are the chances that your app could be modified to record a signal through the built-in tuner on Sony NSX models? Nothing too fancy, simple mp4 recording of a show. Perhaps even from a guide source?

Why? I am looking to move away from Win7 Media Ctr, and it would be great if there was an all-in-one app for Android.

At the very least, what is the likelihood that GTVBox could read .dvr-ms /.wtv extensions?

Thanks!

Capturing of tv/dvr signal on GTV device is technically not possible.
Never dealt with dvr-ms or wtv formats. I should find some specs to check.
