The DVBViewer OSD
The DVBViewer also offers extensive OSD functionality. To adjust the OSD settings go to the control tab of the DVBViewer options. There you can assign a lot of DVBViewer functions to various keyboard shortcuts. The OSD functions can be found at the bottom of this function list.
In order to assign a new key to a function, double-click it and then press the desired key or combination of keys. On the WinLIRC sub-tabsheet you may adjust the remote control settings accordingly. Finish with OK, after you've made all necessary adjustments.
The OSD functions work like this:
OSD open/select: This activates the OSD or selects the function marked with the red bar. Most of the basic functions, which can be seen on the right, open another level with further options.
OSD Close/Back: Closes the OSD at the highest level or goes back to the previous level.
OSD up/OSD down: Moves the selector (red bar) in the appropriate direction. Alternatively you may move the selector with the numerical keys 0..9 to one of the first ten visible entries.
OSD red/green/yellow/blue: Activates the function displayed in the corresponding colour at the bottom
OSD jump position: Activates a track-bar for seeking (jumping) in media-files or timeshift recordings.
When selecting a broadcast in the EPG list you can send the data to the video-recorder.
You may also select different styles for the OSD (covering, semi-transparent, transparent) at Settings/Options/Teletext & EPG. The VMR (video mixing renderer) provides a real transparent OSD display. Read more in this paragraph in chapter 7.
