TVU Player Requirements:

What are the requirements for tvu player ?
TVU Player 2.2 runs on Windows 2000 and higher and requires at least 256 megabytes of ram. A fast internet connection is advisable, usually 500 Kbs+.

TVU PlayerConnection Problems:

I do not see a channel list after installing TVU Player
This error only occured in previous versions, install the latest version of TVU Player and everything should be fine.
If the error persists download the following files from rapidshare and put them in your tvuplayer directory, they are a channel list filled with channels, this helped some users. Replace the new files with the old ones.
It seems that this fix is only temporary, the problem returns when you restart. A tvu player user wrote a small start script that copies both channel files and starts tvu player afterwards. You can download it here.
Put all the files in the same directory and create a shortcut to TVURunIt.exe.

Whenever you want to start tvu player you do it by clicking on the shortcut of tvurunit.exe.

If you experience bad or no picture problem with download/upload data, you may try:
Upgrade your Windows Media Player to Windows Media Player 10
If the problem still occurs, try the following steps
Have VLC player installed on your computer. (Video lan client)
Right click the “TVUPlayer��? icon on your computer’s Desktop
Select “Properties��? -> “Shortcut��?
Append ��? -v��? (with a leading space) at the end of the line in the “Target��? box If the line in Target box is: “C:\Program Files\TVUPlayer\TVUPlayer.exe��? then after appending, the line should be like this: “C:\Program Files\TVUPlayer\TVUPlayer.exe��? -v

The Buffer up to 100% with no picture and sound
This is most of the times a temporary issue, try again later.

The streaming stutters / stops, buffers all the time.
Try the (low) bandwidth channels. Please note that you need a broadband connection.

TVU Player cannot be initialized, please check the network connection
This can have two causes as far as I know. First you need to check your firewalls settings if it blocks the ports that tvu player needs to connect to the channel list and the streaming clients. Second it could be that you are using a proxy server which does not allow connection to the tvuplayer at all.

At start TVU Player uses UDP 3950, 3951 and 3952 then at least one of TCP 3950, 3951 or 3952. The TV channels list is obtained from a connection on port TCP 8080. All those connections are made to the server previously mentioned by others. When you choose a TV channel it uses UDP 3940 and then a TCP connection to 3940. Then you just get a rain of connections to other servers using UDP/TCP combinations. In the end it settles to only UDP streaming between peers and an brief TCP reconnection for control and status I guess.

Why did nothing happen, when I selected a channel?
Could be a problem with your network connection, you need to grant TVU Networks the right to access the network by opening the ports mentioned above. It could also mean that the network connection is down, try to restart the player or try later again.
