Great that the dev works further on his freeware software. New version works very good and this is , together with the 10 € Easycap (& clones) USB Stick the cheapest way of video digitizing / videorecording for Videotapes and also XBOX, PS. To get significant better solutions you need to buy at least HW for 150 €+. Other "Mac" Video USB Sticks around 50 € giving NOT better results!

Since last update i have sometimes (1:5 runs) major problem after starting GB:
1. GB starts up and shows "No Online Connection" uper rigth corner. No searches are shown on the left side.
2. After that GB hangs
3. Even more problem - after that i cant start any other app they all stall. THat happenes to all Apps whoch needs internet. But i am sure that my internet connection is 100% available in this time.
I have to reboot in this case to get other apps working again.
Hope that is fixed in that version.

Happens again, but without blocking the whole mac. I got lots of errors in the console after try to run GB.

16.03.13 07:03:51,095 GarageBuy[14042]: -[IHEFConnector sendRequestString:verb:] sendSynchronousRequest returned error: Zeitüberschreitung bei der Anforderung. (data length: 0)

Happens before the window to connect / disable some iOS device comes up.
Q: Why always that window comes up and asks to connect to such in device - i dont have such iOS device.

No fear ;) I use Clusters (Squeeze) since the beginning and only removed last version before updating to ML. All compressed files stay compressed and stay usabele without clusters. Only if you would boot with old 10.5 DVD/extternal HD you will get problems because compressed HFS* isnst supported by < 10.6.
I saved over 15 GB space selecting some Apps and some Folders.
Great! Only at first install the first check/compress background process takes some time / slows down system minimal, but less than spotlight first run. Later the system will not get any slowdowns - it only works

Can it be that new 10.8.1 B17 dev build makes problems to handoff.
Got an handsoff init failure message window after install 10.8.1 B17 build. handsoff app itself can be started but i am unsure if the background .kext / processes work or not.

Thanks for hint to DL and install the SDK for JAVA 1.70. Now it is listed in the Apple JAVA Preferences.
Problem: if i run JBidwatcher or TVBrowser it doesnt work. if only 1.70 is active. Both complaining no JAVA 1.6 (1.5) is found.
If i also active the 1.6.0 JAVA they work but 1.6.0 is used.
Is this an prob of that apps (in JAVA checks) or in general?
What JAVA App (simple which shows in Log / About what JAVA is used) runs in your system with 1.7.0 ?

java -version
java version "1.7.0_06"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_06-b24)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.2-b09, mixed mode)
So i am sure JAVA 1.7.0 is active but cant be found by TVBrowser / JBidwatcher. Rebooted + repaired permissions already.

Mitch_de replied on 16 Aug 2012
Screenshoot showing that problem:
About... TVBrowser (JAVA App) shows using JAVA 1.6.0 (Apple) even the new 1.7.0 is in the list on the top. If i disable Apple no JAVA apps runs anymore.

Thanks fixing the check/uncheck item problem!
cleaned 2.1 GB languages with 10.8 / some apps.
@ developer : Nice to have would be an files removed count beside already available removed MB/GB count at the end of the cleaning.
Because most of the language files are small the removement % belong to used HD space isnt so much (mostly < 3%) . But in filecount it can be >> 20%. And much less files means faster volumecheck, backups ...

Great tool in general/past.
New 1.5 version has some major problems, like if i want to check/unckeck any of the languages in the preferences nothing happes. checked stay checked - unchecked unchecked.

I dont understand why V4 doesnt support all IP Cams which were supported in Version 3!
I understand thats impossible to support all , but why lost support of IP cams which are already implemented in V3.
My EDIMAX 1500GW works with 3.0 but is not listed in 4.0. So i will not buy V 4.0.

I get it managed (my EDIMAX) by using the configure IP Cam (universal) entry. Worked. Should be no problem for the devs to add some of the working V3 devices as entry profiles into V4, i think.
I understand that first they work on main development tasks before adding the known older IP cams.
Mitch_de commented on 08 Nov 2011
It works and its not an fake / not useless for OS X.
The only problem is that such a tool (running in background all time) takes itself some cpu % to manage the cpu load savings.
Would be nice if the dev tries to optimize the app step by step in the future - lot of work but makes the tool more recommendable.
The tool has less cpu usage, no prob but it would be better to get it even more less and use 64 Bit.

I upgraded today from long + problemless used iDefag 1.x to 2.11.
Upgrade price is OK also the upgrade process was very easy.
HINT: You dont need to defrag all files every time - iDefrag, thats unique to all other defrag tools, let you defrag single files from the fragment list shown after the analyse process. Mostly only some but always same files (aperture files, some db files) are high fragmented and gets defraged by an simple click on defrag file within seconds - minute.
iDefrag is great - even for non highend users.
Last but not least: Nerver run such tools without an Volume check (and repair if needed) on your mac.

EDIT: Beside aperture files all very big files get great help by idefrag (OS X defrags only files < 20 MB automaticly and good).
These are: VMWARE + PARALLELS hd image files, big caches which getting worse after high fragmentation and all other big files with often added / changed content = fragmentation.

Hi, i dont understand how make JAVA 7 default.
It is set (and the only listed) in the JAVA pref pane.
It is not listed in the (old) Apple Java settings.
If i run JAVA Apps, like jbidder i can see it used VAJA 6 (Apple) and not new JAVA 7.

Great App!
But i have an problem to get any export (PDF, others):
If i select some Videos or an set of some, i get an blank (zero items) PDF preview (or other export).
The items look normal / as other videos in the list and detail info.

FIXED: I investigated that some of my DVD entries (4 of 400) were somehow "bad".
I deleted them and added them again by autocomplete. Now export works again (all ).
Each of the 4 "bad" entries looked OK in the views - dont know why they blocked all exports.

Problem: 24.10.09 23:02:41 Safari[839] Error ... AdBlocker: mach-o, but wrong architecture
So AdBlocker Plugin is not loaded.
I have an 64 Bit Intel C2D CPU and running 10.5.8.
i beleive that something with that build (Xcode options) was going wrong.
Cookies from same dev runs perfect.

Bug ?:
If i want to erase not wanted cookies by erase non favorites or by delete (marked) cookie it didnt work. Nothing happens.
It only works if inside the host cookie folder is not more than one cookie listed.
But most not wanted add cookies have > 1 cookie entry.
I must show whole folder content of that main cookie folder and earse them there.
Would be fine to also can erase unwanted cookies (having >1 entries inside) with one click.
