First, choose the package for your operating system:
Download and run this installer; choose an installation directory and then, after installation, choose ‘Mivvi’ from the start menu.
Download this zip file, then open it by double-clicking. Copy the enclosed folder onto your hard disk then, in the copy you just made, double-click on the ‘mivvi.jar’ file.
It’s Linux. You know what you’re doing, right?
(For other platforms with Java support, take the Linux distribution
and delete the
lib/libjdic.so: you won’t be able to browse
or launch media.)
Mivvi will ask you for permission to check its website for current program data. (If you say ‘no’, Mivvi will use the data you got when you downloaded it, which may well be out of date.) Don’t worry – you can always change your decision later using the Settings menu.
Progress bars will tell you what’s happening. If you let Mivvi check, it will be downloading new data. Then, it needs to load that data in.
The first thing Mivvi wants to do is show upcoming TV broadcasts, by connecting to RadioTimes.com, but you can choose Cancel and leave that for later.
When Mivvi has loaded, the central window shows buttons to get to the other windows.
What’s next? Here are the things Mivvi can do.
