The DVBViewer Files

This is a list of the files being installed:

  • dvbviewer.exe: This is the main application.

  • channels.dat: This file contains the channels with all settings. You are advised to keep a backup of it.

  • setup.xml: This file contains the settings for DVBViewer. If you modify any property, it will be permanently written to this file. You may also open the Setup.ini with a text editor (e.g. notepad), although any modifications should better be done from within the DVBViewer, except you know exactly what you do.

  • favourites.xml: This is the list of favourite channels.

  • epg.dat: This file is created by the DVBViewer and contains the EPG (electronic program guide) data.

  • *.ax: All files with the .ax file extension located at the filter directory are DirectShow filters, which process the datastream received from the satellite.

  • *.ini: All files with the .ini file extension in the subfolder transponder are transponder lists. They contain data necessary for a fast channel scan of various satellites. With the proper knowledge you may alter them though it is important to keep the sequential numbering.

  • *.dll: All files with the .dll file extension in the subfolder plugins are additional program parts for importing different channel-lists, SatCodX for example. There are other plugins (e.g. a sleep-timer), which can be downloaded at the service center at

  • *.lng: All files with the .lng file extension in the subfolder language are language files for the user interface.

  • regfilter.exe: This file registers all filters (not necessary when installing the first time).

  • DVBServer.exe: streaming application.

  • hardware.xml: settings for the DVB hardware devices.

  • server.xml: settings for streaming.

  • timers.xml: contains the timer programming.

  • subpages.xml: settings for subtitles including the teletext page number

  • windowdef.xml: central management information about OSD windows and commands

  • settings for a remote

  • audiovis.ini: settings for Sonique-visualisations
