You can't : its made from Mode9 and LUA scripts launching a media player to stream web TV channels.

They can work only with Sense running.

You can still do the same manually by using a standard streaming media app and typing the addresses...

Is it possible to just run Manila TV Player as just a stand alone program, instead of all the XML editing? I don't need it as a TF3D tab.

Will it just work as a stand alone program if I install:

I'm just trying to find the best tv player for HTC Touch HD (Blackstone)

    If you make stream files send me to share with others thank's ;)
    Hello, great job, it works perfectly.

    Only slight drawback : it doesn't feature a landcape display mode, so using for instance ChangeScreen won't display it nicely, but it's not lethal ! :D

    The other drawback (not directly related to this mod) is the fact that you can never freely add a single tab to Manila : you have to update the entire tabs list by overwriting the previous one.

    So just installing the CAB will generally result in a big mess, as some of your existing tabs will disappear, and not all of them will be manageable from the HTC parameters.

    Actually, the CAB should be given in two parts : one with the necessary files to have the TV tab working, and another one to display it, made on purpose for the ROM you're actually using.

    As I'm now using NRGZ28's Energy ROMs, I made a variant for this CAB that will work with them, without touching the existing tabs... But beware : it will only work with Energy ROMs or any other displaying the same tabs.

    You'll then end up with 17 fully functional tabs, all being manageable in the HTC tabs parameters (to hide / display them and change their order).

    This is done by manually modifying the 26948339_manila and the registry.

    If you don't use an Energy ROM, please don't use the attached CAB, as tabs definitions contain links to M9 modules in Manila files that can be absent from your system, and TF3D / Sense could hang on startup.

    Energy ROMs contain "Recent documents", "All phone calls", "Twitter" and "Facebook" tabs that may be absent from your own configuration, so Sense may crash on startup if you try to use this CAB while the necessary Manila files can't be found.

    You can of course download it anyway and edit the 26948339_manila XML file if you're at ease with it, but you could do it from Drg's original file too, though I also fixed the registry entries in the attached CAB.

    Note that in my CAB, the TV tab is numbered "16" (tabs are numbered from 0, so the number 16 is actually the 17th) so it doesn't interfere with the already existing tabs (that's why it appears in the list from HTC parameters and can be moved where you want to, while it couldn't be done in the original CAB). The original CAB was designed for a 12-tabs only template.

    Also remember that if you wish to translate the new tab's buttons to another language, then you'll have to modify the usual 17956b33_manila file, too. :)
