German forum dead

Post#1 » Sun Dec 25, 2016 8:44 pm

Hello, since a few days, the forum on is dead (the blog pages are Ok), the forum displays database errors or something like that. I have sent an email to the admin, but no reaction. Does anybody knows more?

Now it seems to be really dead. There is a WAP index doc shown instead. some deep links from bookmarks resulting in an error, too. And this is since some weeks now. Does anybody know what happened?

Cheers, made

My guess would be that with the change to HEVC/H265 for OTA TV introduced across Germany on the 31st of March this year was the last nail in the coffin. WMC cannot handle HEVC or the C1+ cards needed for the decode of pay TV (cable and OTA).

I hope doesn't disappear without a trace. How can users support it?
