What it is

TVExplorer is a replacement screen for the My TV screen. It duplicates most/all of the functionality on the My TV screens. It is similar to Windows Explorer and/or the Malore Menus.
  • Very customizable to get the exact look/feel the user is after
  • Fully supports fanart/posters/banners.
  • Multiple different grouping/sorting/filtering settings.
  • Displays imported TV (videos that are TV but are not part of the Sage recording DB) alongside recorded TV. (It is possible to limit the scope of the imported TV search to certain directories using pathfilterexpressions or a property item. I recommend doing this with large dvd/bd collections)
  • Leverages metadata collected by BMT or mediascraper to determine if a particular video is TV and also displays season/episode information
  • Filters groups by Record Year, Original Airing Year, or Season/Episode.
Installation Instructions
  1. Shutdown SageTV including the service if installing on the server
  2. (If upgrading from 1.0) Delete the TVExplorer working directory (usually C:\Program Files\SageTV\SageTV\STVs\SageTV3\SageMCE\TVExplorer)
  3. Extract the latest "" (where XXX = the TVE Version) file to your sage installation directory (usually C:\Program Files\SageTV\SageTV)
  4. Make sure you are running sagex 6.6.1 or later. You can check what sagex version you have installed in TVEOptions -> Info. You can get the latest sagex version here.
  5. Restart SageTV
  6. Load an STV WITHOUT TVE installed. This is important. TVE will not import correctly if an earlier version exists. The easiest way to accomplish this is to load the base SageMC STV (My Menu -> Settings -> Load STV). See here for more info. Note: You will need to reimport your other customizations after upgrading TVE if reverting back to the base SageMC STV.
  7. Navigate to My Menu -> Settings -> Import STVi
  8. Browse and Select TVExplorer_XXX.xml (where XXX = the TVE Version). Yes to import the STVi.
  9. Show TVExplorer on the main menu. You have 2 choices here:
    Edit sage_menu.xml (in your installation directory)
    1. Shutdown SageTV
    2. Add the following to your sage_menu.xml file in your sage installation directory
      <internalScreenMenuItem icon="hover_my tv.png" screen="TV Explorer" title="TV Explorer"
           <evalExpression> </evalExpression
    3. Restart SageTV
    Customize the Screen Layout from within the UI
    1. From the Main Menu. Options -> Main Menu Options -> New... -> New Internal Screen.
    2. Browse and Select TV Explorer
    3. Give TV Explorer a Name.
    4. Save the Menu File. File... -> Save menu file
  10. You should have a TV Explorer Menu Item now. Time to go exploring
  • SageMC 6.3.9a or later. Have not tested with earlier versions
  • Phoenix api 1.32 or later. The easiest way to get this is to install BMT 3.0 Beta 9 or later
  • sagex 6.6.1 or later. Get it here.
