Hello I'm currently on trial with TVMosaic, I knew about DVBViewer but always thought it was too messy, however TVM I like.
To the point where I need to decide If I want to continue working with this program and android app and pay for it.
The PC version of the program I have troubles with just "running" it without administrator, If i do so I will end of with a lot of TVM instances running in the background slowly borking my PC
Maybe check if an instance is already running to prevent running multiple of same TVM Client.
So after killing all processes and Right clicking on TVM selecting administrator it works as intended.
Tested version 2.2.0(15) and version 2.3.0(16)
Missing a Pre setting to set subs and audio lang by default
All the android devices I have tested it on the subs and audio does not do anything, I cannot get it to show subs or change audio, also the desired selection does not get saved. btw. This works beautiful in "google's" live channel app, so I'm sure you can get it to work too.
In the PC client software you can change the subs and audio and it actually works, but does also not gets saved selection.
The overall ui and font/text is for my personal taste too big and cluttered you are missing a lot.
Take example this screenshot from my TV using androidTV when I want to select subtitles, you cannot read and have to guess(but kinda hard when you do not know if subs are working or not)
Another good example is the purple info box at the bottom(so much wasted space)
This example shows content to read, the box is so big and yet I have to scroll down to read further about this episode
Now to one of the biggest issues is the controlling and navigation it "sucks"
You cannot get the sub/audio menu up you are forced to use mouse pointer and move it to the top of the screen then mouse click left in order to show, which you cannot do at ALL with the small dpad remote shown on picture, I'm forced to use my RII remote pad which kinda defeats the purpose of AndroidTV then.
Navigating through channels when watching something and clicking OK, makes you vomit, you have to do a frustrated combination in order for it to go up and select the white channel text and then go left or right, 99% of the time you will fail and it will just swap to the channel right or left for it, also you are also in for a treat by timeshiftning a lot even when you did not want to do that at that particular moment.
Sometimes the control selection gets stuck over to the left "just like this"
You have to click backwards once or twice in order for to get the menu up and get control of the selection again.
Last but not least for now, the EPG load times are really slow.
When starting up or navigating through selections/menus I tend to catch the EPG data get whiped and reloaded which takes everything from 5-10 seconds it feels so unpolished and I'm getting triggered by this, maybe cache the entire EPG file on the device or find a better way to to make it work, its just bad right now, sorry
I hope this was readable, if not well sorry, let me know and I will try to setup/explain better.
