SageTV V6.3.6 Release Candidate 1/4/2008

Core Updates
1. Repair the video directory property of MediaFiles since it could be wrong if they moved directories
2. Added retry for when the MiniServer socket fails to open at startup
3. Added property: ui/load_complete_glyph_maps which enables complete characters in 3D mode and on the MVP & STX-HD100
4. Added retry for when the SageTVServer socket fails to open at startup
5. Fixed bug so files with .mp4 file extensions get auto-recovered by the importer (before it only did .mpg, .ts and .avi)
6. FIX: the TS recording created by third party software isn't able playback in SageTV
7. Add H.264 format detection for H.264 remuxed PS file.

Extender Updates
1. Added optimized seeking for MPEG2-TS file playback on media extenders (same technique used with MPEG2-PS files and the media extenders)
2. Fixed bug on HD extender where it wouldn't enter screen saver mode sometimes
3. Added UI specific property: default_advanced_aspect_ratio which allows setting the default aspect ratio on the STX-HD100
4. Fixed bug on extender playback where the volume would get reset to the maximum if there was a failure playing back a file.
5. Increased buffer sizes in remuxer so we don't overwrite data we've already converted
6. Fix missing audio on some DVD. Force sync on interleaved block.

Windows Updates
1. Fixed so that the 'always_use_dshow_player' property also affects music playback as well
2. Ues a temporary walk around way for a M780 bug that recording file is locked, and resource isn't released.

Macintosh Updates
1. Fixed fullscreen mode on Leopard
2. Added mouse hiding
3. Fixed placeshifter not being able to resume video due to an exception in the VM not being cleared or handled
4. Added support for Pinnacle PCTV Hybrid 800e
5. Now properly causes the app to rescan for devices on hotplug events

Placeshifter updates
1. Added property "miniplayer/min_bandwidth_for_no_transcode" which allows setting the bandwidth that must be detected in order to the auto-transcoder not to kick in

STV Updates
1. Reset last thumb scroll time for a folder when the item gains focus so that it doesn't scroll its thumbs immediately.
2. Changed YouTube "Top Viewed" and "Recently Added" categories to "Most Viewed" and "Most Recent".
3. Added "Top Channels" to the YouTube video menu.
4. During playback of a live recording, Detailed Info now jumps to Recording Details instead of Program Info.
5. Changed copyright notice on System Info screen to say "2008".
6. Added some more online video links
