The buttons:


Define DVBViewer path

By clicking on Search you can define the path and name of the DVBViewer executable.

This path and filename is used by the Plugin to start and stop DVBViewer, switch the channel and find the list of scheduled recordings.

Read Channellist

By clicking on Read DVBViewer channels the content of the DVBViewer channel list will be read and made available for channel assignments.

Assign Channels

Channel names in TV-Browser and DVBViewer are not always equal. Therefor an assignment between them must be made. For this please select a channel from the TV-Browser channels dropdown list and from the DVBViewer channels dropdown list.

By clicking on the Set button the assigment will be added to the list of channel assignments. If you want to remove an assigment please click with the right mouse button onto the list entry that should be removed.

Please pay attention to the fact that identical channel names not necessarily mean identical channels. For example there could be the german Free-TV channel RTL in TV-Browser but in DVBViewer this will be most likely the radio station RTL. Due to this the Service ID of the DVBViewer channel is displayed.

Mark Programs
