No configurations or settings are needed. The intuitive, user friendly interface will give you a pure Plug n' Play! experience.

The Channel Guides

TV features exclusive channel guide technology
The channel guides are updated each time you turn on TV.
Each channel guide streams into TV from a server.
The two active guides are stored in different ways.
The upper channel guide is sorted by subjects like:
Music, News, Educational TV, Sports, etc... And by the station's main language.
The lower channel guide is sorted by world regions,
going from one world or continent (and near Islands), down to each country and it's channels.
TV does not have an internal (offline) channel guide, it receives it online,
which means fresh new channels are added dynamically
as soon as they become available and inactive channels are removed.

About the picture and sound quality

The video & audio of the broadcasts is dependent on the broadcaster's own bandwidth,
the higher the bandwidth the better the picture & sound quality you will receive.
Of course you need the necessary bandwidth on your side.
It is recommended to watch TV from 1.5-2 meters (5-7ft.) from the screen.

Channel switching

Changing channels may take between a few seconds, and up to 30 seconds and even more (rare).
Channels sometimes may be unavailable due to the servers' overload, Internet traffic jams,
technical errors on the broadcaster's side, etc.
You may try to view this channel again in a few minutes.

Full screen view

Changing to full screen view is very easy
If it's a "Windows Media Player" station then choose Full Screen
Esc to exit Full Screen mode back to TV window mode.
Other Players have their own full screen option.

Firewalls

If you have a personal firewall on your PC.
On the first run of TV it will prompt you with request from TV.exe to access the Internet.
Please allow it (Choose 'Permit') to connect and check the "Always use this action" box.
