EPG Options

On this tabsheet the Teletext and EPG options are located.

Do not receive EPG-data: Processing the EPG data can be very time-con­suming on some channels. If this causes problems in conjunction with a slow CPU, the display may become jerky or the sound may get distorted, processing the EPG data can be switched off by using this option, although no EPG will be available then.

Auto-popup Mini-EPG in seconds: Enabled, the DVBViewer automatically displays some EPG information about the current broadcast after tuning a channel. The input field on the right determines how many seconds the EPG info remains visible.

Persistent EPG data: Enabled, all collected EPG data is saved to the hard disk, when the DVBViewer is shut down (EPG.dat in the DVBViewer folder), so that the data is available after the next program start.

Teletext Options

Here you can modify the appearance of the Teletext window. The Teletext options appear after clicking the sub-tabsheet Teletext:

Font: Here you can select the font, which is used for Teletext representation.

Colours: The lower area of the teletext options allows for defining the colour set. First select the colour you want to modify in the list on the left (colour 0..7). Then choose the new colour in the field in the middle. Alternatively you may type the red/green/blue values of the new colour in the three input fields R, G, B. Click the Set button, in order to apply the new colours. The Restore colours button resets the colours to their default.

TV & Radio

Hide display in radio mode. Enabled, the DVBViewer's display window shrinks when tuning a radio-channel, so that you will only see the menu, icon and status bar. The OSD can't be accessed while being in radio mode.

Channel switching delay: Enable and set a delay in milliseconds. This is pretty useful, if you are frequently using the Channel plus/minus function (via mouse or keyboard).

The delay enables switching several channels forward/backward without tuning them, while the channel names are displayed continuously in the DVBViewer-window.

Fast Channelswitch: Enabled, switching to another channel is performed much faster. However there are issues with certain MPEG2 decoders, for example Elecard. Particularly changes of the video resolution or audio mode (e.g. from stereo to a mono signal, and thus to a lower audio bit rate) sometimes lead to distortions (Mickey Mouse voices, the picture is compressed to 2/3 of the width). These can be fixed easily, however, by using Rebuild Graph in the view menu. If the Fast Channelswitch option is not checked, the graph will be automatically rebuilt when switching over to another channel.

Automatic channel data update dynamically updates the PIDs of the current channel, useful and necessary for certain regional broadcasts.

colour set. First select the colour you want to modify in the list on the left (colour 0..7). Then choose the new colour in the field in the middle. Alternatively you may type the red/green/blue values of the new colour in the three input fields R, G, B. Click the Set button, in order to apply the new colours. The Restore colours button resets the colours to their default.
