Logging must be activated by modifying a configuration file. Logging cannot be activated in the Settings.

In TV-Browsers Program Install directory one of the following files (depending on the OS) exists:, or

Open the file for the respective OS (Windows = usw.) and modify the section "# The folder for logging". Remove the "#" in front of the path #logdirectory=... . Modify the path if required. Always use "/" instead of "\" (regardless of OS). "#" marks the start of a comment - any subsequent characters on the same line will be ignored.
