Tags configuration

This tab is used to configure channel tags. Tags are used to define a set of channels. Notice that nothing prohibits a channel to be a member of multiple tags. Also, there is no requirement to configure tags for running Tvheadend itself. It is, however, required if you run Tvheadend together with Showtime.

The tag-sets are used for:

  • Searches in the EPG.
  • Display of channel groups in the Showtime Media player.

The tags are listed / edited in a grid.

  • To edit a cell, double click on it. After a cell is changed it will flags one of its corner to red to indicated that it has been changed. To commit these changes back to Tvheadend press the 'Save changes' button. In order to change a Checkbox cell you only have to click once in it.
  • To add a new entry, press the 'Add entry' button. The new (empty) entry will be created on the server but will not be in its enabled state. You can now change all the cells to the desired values, check the 'enable' box and then press 'Save changes' to activate the new entry.
  • To delete one or more entries, select the lines (by clicking once on them), and press the 'Delete selected' button. A pop up will ask you to confirm your request.

The columns have the following functions:

  • Enabled
    Make the tag available in the rest of the system. If the tag is not enabled it is only presented in this grid for the administrator.
  • Name
    Name of the tag. Changing the tag name does not interfere with any automatic recordings, groups, etc.
  • Internal
    Tags are exported via HTSP (to the Showtime Media player) and used there for grouping of TV channels. If you do not wish to export a tag you can flag it as internal only.
  • Icon
    Full path to an icon used to depict the tag. This can be a TV network logotype, etc.
  • Icon has title
    If set, presentation of the tag icon will not superimpose the tag name on top of the icon.
  • Comment
    Allows the administrator to set a comment only visible in this editor. It does not serve any active purpose.
