Slimm GB-PVR Version 1.6.2705.25961 released

To install:

For all details regarding current version, please see documentation which is installed alongside the utility and is available in the GBPVR start menu group.

This release:


  • Option to start GB-PVR whenever Slimm GB-PVR is loaded. Request: “Would it be possible to add another checkbox that makes GBPVR.EXE get launched every time SlimmGBPVR is launched? Sometimes I shutdown SlimmGBPVR, then when I rerun it would like it to launch GBPVR for me.”
  • The auto-restart recording service now does not fire if the GB-PVR Config application has been run within the last minute. This stops it attempting to restart the recording service at the same time as the GB-PVR Config application.
  • Slimm GB-PVR can now auto-kill any GBPVRTray processes while it is running.
  • Maintenance Mode added to Tools menu.
  • Running recording service checked for on startup. If not running and auto-restart is disabled, a warning balloon is shown with information on how to restart it.
  • Auto-restart recording service feature is checked on startup. If not enabled, a warning balloon is shown with information on how to enable it.
  • Tools -> Restart Recording Service. If Maintenance Mode is enabled, this could leave the auto-restart recording service feature disabled so you are asked whether you would like to automatically turn off Maintenance Mode.
  • OfferToDeletePlayedRecording and SmartDateTodayHours to Registry settings.

Bug Fixes

  • The tooltip for the checkboxes under Tray Configuration -> Startup all had the wrong tooltips because I copied the section “Database disconnect during EPG update”.
  • Upper limit for number of items on Pending menu changed from 10 to 100.


  • Added more logging to power management and delayed shudown areas.
  • Sub-menu appearance changed slightly.
