The PackeTV Software Suite includes three applications, the PackeTV Manager, the PackeTV Viewer, and the PackeTV Configuration Utility. Any or all of these applications can be installed on a Windows based PC.
The PackeTV Manager and PackeTV Viewer applications include an MPEG-2 software codec which requires a registration license (per PC) to operate past the free evaluation period. Some AVN products come with a number of free registration licenses based upon serial number and registration number. Alternatively, licenses can be purchased through the shopping cart for $25 each. Purchasing a PackeTV registration license will add one available license to your customer account. To activate the registration license install and launch the PackeTV Manager or Viewer software and follow the on screen instructions. Note: an Internet connection is required to use the application's online registration/license system. If you wish to register/license the software without an Internet connection follow the instructions given in the Support->FAQ question "How do I register my PackeTV Manager/Viewer without being connected to the Internet?" here.
