The only version (English) of TVBrowser I'm able to find on the sites you listed contain only German, Swiss and Austrian chanels--none that are American. Is this an error, or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks
Hank

According to this topic http://hilfe.tvbrowser.org/viewtopic.php?t=4354 seems that they have removed zap2it plugin for the moment, but it will be rewriten in future.


The zap2it plugin is available again :
