Which features make it unique?

the first program with a so called DesktopTV mode and in its category
the only product which offers AC-3 and Timeshifting features.

behind other mediacenters. From playing multimedia contents up to receiving
RSS newsfeeds, weather data, everything is possible.
What are the differences between the Technisat Edition and
the proversion? There are various features, which are only available in the
proversion. A few examples, could be found here.
Change: General: Default configuration files including the transponder lists shipped with DVBViewer are not stored in the installation folder anymore, but in the Default sub-directory.
Change: Main Window: When the DVBViewer main window is restored from the minimized state all other minimized DVBViewer windows are also restored. Previously each window had to be restored separately.
Added: File Playback: Jumping to the previous/next chapter, if a MKV file contains chapter markers.
Added: File Playback: Tweak “Use chapters for Previous/Next actions” (see Tweaker.exe). Applies to DVD and MKV playback, provided chapter markers are present. Enables jumping to chapters instead of 1 minute back/forward. The default is “on”.
Change: File Playback: The default playback method for DVBViewer Media Server recordings from another PC is now “Media Server Streaming” except for recordings with UNC path (also see “Method for playing remote recordings” setting in Tweaker.exe). Streaming allows DVBViewer to access the recordings without network shares.
Fix: Teletext Window: Teletext pages saved as .bmp or .png were rendered with too large characters overlapping each other if the Windows text size was greater than 100% (see here).
Added: Teletext Window: Tweak “Width of saved teletext images” (see Tweaker.exe) for specifying the width of teletext images saved as .png or .bmp in pixels. The height is scaled accordingly.
Change: Channel Logos: Enhanced handling that uses less memory. Please note: On next channel logo access the file ChannelLogos.ini (containing logo → channel assignments) is converted to a more efficient format and stored as ChannelLogos2.ini.
Added: Channel Logo Options: New “Default Logo” context menu item that resets the selected logo → channel assignment to its default. It does the same as the Reset button, but for a single entry.
Fix: Channel Logo Options: Cancel did not undo changed logo → channel assignments.
Fix: Timer Recording Window: After opening the Window the currently played channel was assigned to the channel field in the input area, not the channel of the selected timer recording (see here).
Fix: EPG Window: The timeline view was restricted to displaying the EPG only one week ahead (see here). The keyboard shortcut for opening the Timer Recording Window did not work correctly. It is now Ctrl+M.
Fix: OSD: The OSD menu timeout set on Options → OSD General did not work anymore (since 6.0.2, see here).
Fix: Actions: Missing entries in the file actions.ini (see installation directory), particularly “Video Window 1” and “Radio Window”. The former “Hide All” entry has been renamed to “Video Window 2” (see here).
Fix: Hardware: DVB Tuner allocation did not work correctly in case of competing access to hybrid tuners and tuners that were configured for “Shared LNB”. They were used simultaneously though they shouldn't. (since 6.0.2).
Fix: COM Interface: Deleting favorites with the RemoveFavorite function did not work correctly (see here).
Change: TS Stream: Enhanced Handling of relative paths in URLs. Required for playing certain HLS streams.
Updated: Default channel lists for internet TV / Radio in \Default\Channels\.directory.
