What is the Reminder?

The Reminder does exactly what its name imposes. It reminds you of shows you would like to watch. Please be aware that it can only remind you, if the TV Browser application is active in the background!

A dialogue will pop up showing details about the show you wanted to be reminded of.

It can even be defined that a remembered show will be transferred to a plug-in. To do this, please select the respective plug-ins in the Send reminded program to section.

If you would like to be reminded with a reminder window, you may configure the display time of the dialogue.
