Here you can define if and how long the Mini EPG is shown after channel switching. 0 deactivates the Mini EPG popup.
If your providers send EPG in more than one language, you can select here which language you prefer.
Time zone Settings
The EPG times are transmitted in GMT (Greenwich Mean Time). The receiver has to convert these times into local times. For this it needs the time zone, in germany it would be = 2 (DST) or = 1 (winter time). If the option „automatic timezone“ is enabled, the Recording Service uses the windows API to get the correct time zone, this does also take care of the DST switching.
A wrongly set time zone leads to wrong times in the EPG. Via EPG programmed timers will use the wrong time and your recordings will go down the drain.
If you don't see any EPG or it suddenly stops working, first check your system time of the PC.
