    Introduction

    TV Movie ClickFinder is a reliable and feature rich application supplying you with EPG data for german TV channels. The ClickFinder Plugin maps this data to your MediaPortal TV channels.

    Requirements

    • MediaPortal and the TV server are installed.
    • A constant Internet connection to receive EPG updates.

    Installation of TV Movie ClickFinder

    Download the latest version of TV Movie ClickFinder from the http://www.ewe-software.de/download.html#tvmovieclickfinder and start the installation by running setup.exe.

    On Windows 7 OS, don't install Tv Movie Clickfinder in your ProgramFiles folder, that causes UAC problems. For example, install the software under C:\TvMovie\.

    The free version of TV Movie ClickFinder gives you 8 TV channels. The premium version (12,99€ / year) has amongst others the following advantages:

    • up to 170 TV channels
    • full EPG data for the next two weeks

    Configuration of TV Movie ClickFinder

    • If you decided to go for the premium version you have to activate your account.
      • Open Datei/Freischalten, click Weiter, Benutzerkonto nutzen and enter your username and password.

      • Under Datei/Einstellungen/Senderauswahl you can now extend the list of TV channels to your needs.

    • To get your first EPG entries just click on Datei/TV-Datenupdate.

    • To make the application update your EPG data continuously and in the background configure it under Datei/Einstellungen/TV-Update as follows:

    Make sure that the TV Timer application is set to start with Windows (this is the default setting). Otherwise you won't get further EPG updates.
