Some tips on use: 1) If you 'Right Click' the icon in the taskbar, and select the option next to the last one then the language changes from Chinese to English - much easier to understand what is going on! 2) A translated version of the web page, which is here: http://translate.google.com/transla...Fsource.shtml 3) If you click on a channel to start it from the web page, you may have to manually start the player from the first option on 'right cick' (start player) ------------------------- Alternative PPLIVE Guide Open the file and just click next and next... to install the software. Of course please ensure that you've already installed Windows Media Player 9 or higher.
