Display Settings

The view menu offers different functions to influence the appearance of the DVBViewer-window:

  • Always on top: Enabled, the DVBViewer window will stay on top of other windows.

  • Hide all: This function hides all controls of the DVBViewer, only a thin frame around the TV picture remains. To revert to the former state you need to right-click the DVBViewer window and select the appropriate function in the context menu.

  • Hide Menu: This function hides the menu bar. You can revert to the normal state via the context menu.

  • Show Status bar: This shows/hides the status bar at the bottom of the DVBViewer window.

  • Show Toolbar: This function shows/hides the toolbar at the top of the DVBViewer window.

  • Show Subtitles: This function lets you enter the number of the teletext page containing the subtitles. To disable subtitles just select Show Subtitles again.

All these features are also available in the fullscreen mode via the context menu.

Fullscreen and Desktop Mode

You can choose between two different modes of displaying the TV picture:

  • Fullscreen: This option switches between window mode and fullscreen mode (the entire display will be used).

You may also (de-)activate fullscreen mode by double-clicking on the display area. In fullscreen mode there are no visual controls by default, but you may enable them via context menu, or simply use the OSD (on screen display) controls.

  • Desktop TV: This is a speciality of the DVBViewer. Selected, the DVBViewer will display the current TV picture as desktop background!

Reminder: You can't access the context menu by right-clicking while being in desktop mode. You need to right-click the tray icon.
