can be used in a web browser via OpenWebif. (When using wizos, OpenWwbif is a system plug in, so you do not have to install it.) In Openwebif SmartEPGvu+ appears in the menu bar on the left and under Extras.
Once SmartEPGvu+ is installed its can also can be used in a web browser via OpenWebif. SmartEPGvu+ then appears in OpenWebIF, both in the menu bar on the left and under Extras.
OpenWebIf expands the Vu+ receiver capabilities to include administration via browser, such as Internet Explorer Firefox, Opera, Safari…
These expanded capabilities are also used by various plugins, including SmartEPGvu+ .
This makes it possible SmartEPGvu+ to carry out functions such as editing search requests directly in the browser.
This has the great advantage that the PC keyboard can be used to type text. You do not need to use the virtual keyboard of the Vu+.
Using SmartEPGvu+ through the OpenWebIf is very much like working on the Vu+ itself, so that you can find your way around quickly.
SmartEPGvu+ also offers its own skin for the LCD Display so that the progress bar which allows the scan progress bar to be displayed during the scan, similar to the display on the TV.
SmartEPGvu+ is tested with OpenWebif from version 1.4.1+ onwards. SmartEPGvu+ may not work correctly with older OpenWebif versions.
SmartEPGvu+ also works with the old web interface. However, only as a menu item under Extras, which links to a separate page /smartepgui/index.html.
The web app therefore also runs „standalone“ under /smartepgui/index.html.
If the old and new interface are installed, SmartEPGvu+ can only register to the old web interface. With the old interface, however, no picons are currently available.
If SmartEPGvu+ is only displayed under Extras, and in the side menu and/or the key for searching from the EPG is not displayed, the „classic interface“ is probably used, i.e. the old Theme is enabled. In this case, go to Settings under Menu and activate „Use new design“ there (set a tick).
After a page refresh at the latest, the SmartEPGvu+ menu item should also be visible again. The „City Lights“ switch may then also need to be either turned on or off.
