7. Changed: ATSC television channel scanning will use existing channel in database with identical channel name, instead of creating a new entry (in case the physical channel is different). This change is necessary to avoid creating duplicates, and to preserve existing subscriptions.

6. Changed: The duration of a television program is shown long-hand instead of as "30:00" in Theater View.

4. Fixed: When using WASAPI, pausing playback, then starting another track, a little of the previous track could play.
5. NEW: Reworked how 'Recently Imported' and 'Recently Ripped' are pruned at shutdown -- always keeps things 7 days old or newer, keeps last 50 items (breaks on album boundaries), removes entire playlist after nothing new for 30 days.

7. Fixed: Using a startup volume setting could cause the setting to unexpectedly get applied when new playback was started in a zone.

10. Fixed: Library views that showed stacks of files based on a date-type field would not work correctly when navigating into the stack.
11. Changed: Pushing left to go back in Theater View will focus the leftmost item on the secondary roller, another left will go to the top roller, and another left will return to the home view.

13.0.136 (03/09/2009)
1. Changed: Reenabled background cover art lookup by default, but capped how many covers a silent auto-import will get each run.

5. Optimized: Switched all stock skins to use only PNG image types for faster skin loading.
6. Changed: Streamlined television OSD when recording/starting/changing channel.
7. NEW: Revised Theater View roller layout to make player controls (pause, playback, vol, etc.) more visible.

5. Changed: Improved support for external cover art on a portable install.

7. Fixed: When an EXIF tag had multiple rotation tags, only one would be updated during lossless image rotation.
8. Optimized: Thumbnail database maintenance no longer scans thumbnail database on program shutdown. (scanning for orphan thumbnails is done when adding a new thumbnail, where it causes no performance hit since the database is loaded at that time regardless)
9. Changed: If Media Center fails to load an image for a file (database says tag has image but it doesn't or database points to missing external file), the image field will get cleared so there isn't a mismatch between the thumbnail and what can actually be loaded.
10. Changed: Updated APE decoding / encoder to the latest Monkey's Audio code. (fixes problem where corrupt frames could play as static instead of silence)
11. Fixed: When finishing playback of the last audio file in a playlist, the player could blink "Buffering..." a few times in the player bar.
12. Changed: When changing the "Pan & Zoom" setting using the on screen display during image playback, the setting change is permanent instead of temporary.

8. Changed: 3D Album / Showroom views use full-resolution textures when zooming into an image.
9. Changed: Scrolling through a Theater View roller won't loop around from end to end during key repeats (works like other Theater View lists).
10. Changed: By default, CD & DVD is after Television in Theater View root view.
11. Fixed: On occasions files for multiple television recordings could end up in the same folder. Deleting one recording would cause other recordings to be deleted.
12. Changed: Renamed "CD & DVD" to "DVD" in Theater View. (sorry, requires root items to be reconfigured)
13. Changed: Mouse-wheeling over a combobox during in-place edit will roll the combobox index instead of scrolling the list.
14. NEW: When clicking a column header to sort a grouped list, you will be asked if you want to sort inside groups or if you want to temporarily disable grouping and sort all the files.
15. Changed: The "Select Filters" context menu item is back for DirectShow audio or video playback.
16. NEW: Entering the Theater View root while playing television or video will pause playback, and resume when exiting Theater View.
17. Changed: Made the toggle system used by the Green button on an MCE remote more sophisticated so that when rolling modes, it will normally put the home screen two clicks away and the display / last view one click away.
18. Changed: Removed the restriction that prevented configuration of TV devices while recording.

13.0.130 (02/26/2009)
1. Changed: When shutting down the system from Theater View, first the program is shutdown, then the system is shutdown. (prevents cases where Windows cuts Media Center off during shutdown making a database save not possible)
2. Changed: Running Media Server will disable the option to 'Allow multiple instances to run at one time'.
3. Changed: ID3v2 tags no longer store a TXXX(JR/Date) in ID3v2.3 tags when they have no more precision (i.e. time) than the year (TYER) field.
4. Fixed: Theater View News could show a superfluous dot at the end of each line when reading the full story.
5. Fixed: "Crop Edges" property that had been saved in database for a video file was not applied when the video was played.
6. Changed: When TV finishes recording and imports the recording into the library, the "Crop Edges" property of the file is set according to the setting under TV Settings.
7. Changed: TV recording files (jtv, jts) that do not have "Crop Edges" property saved in the dataabase will have it default to TRUE at playback time, regardless of the setting's value in "DirectShow video playback settings".

13.0.129 (02/25/2009)
1. Changed: Removed the old "Select Filters" dialog window. Removed DirectShow file type list from "DirectShow Playback Options" window, and renamed the window "DirectShow Video Playback Options."

9. Fixed: In rare cases, bicubic image rendering from a large size to a very small size could cause a crash.

6. Fixed: The search suggestion system was not ignoring accents.

9. NEW: Made audio engine prebuffering configurable in Options > Playback (possibly helpful with uneven network connections, etc.).

11. Optimized: Parsing XMLTV files is over 10x faster.

13.0.120 (02/10/2009)

10. Changed: Added several maintenance routines to the television recording database to ensure old programs, programs on deleted channels, duplicate subscriptions, etc. get cleaned up.
11. Fixed: When multiple television recordings were done during a single time-shifting session reference counting was not done correctly, so deleting the first recording would delete data for subsequent recordings.
12. Fixed: Some illegal characters (from EPG) ended up in jtv filenames for television recordings.
13. Fixed: Minimizing the program with DSP Studio showing could make it impossible to get DSP Studio to show again.

6. Changed: When watching a TV channel that is currently being recorded, MC will not jump to the "live" position.

9. Optimized: Database loading is faster.

13.0.103 (01/07/2009)
1. Fixed: TV tuners that were scanning (for either channels or programming guide) were incorrectly classified as either "idle" or "watching". As a result the TV recording manager would take them over for recording.
2. Fixed: The "Exit" button in Theater View didn't work unless it was removed and added again in options (only applies to build 102).
3. Changed: Theater View uses multi-pass rendering to more nicely fade the edges of rollers and provide a smoother look while animating.

6. Fixed: Browsing into "Unassigned" items in thumbnail views was not working properly.
7. Changed: When maximized, any rounded edges of a skin are removed and filled with solid black so that clicking in the screen corner won't send the click to a window behind Media Center.
8. Changed: When doing File > Open URL..., if the server does not provide a content-type header in the response, it will be assumed to be an MP3 stream.
9. NEW: Theater View list scrolling more nicely supports animated flick-style scrolling.

4. Fixed: Mouse-wheeling over an in-place edit list control could crash.

13.0.99 (12/29/2008)
