4 DVBViewer not the same software as DVBLink

Note! For DVBLink please see the "DVBLink" article instead.

There have to be some confusion between "DVBViewer" and "DVBLink" PVR clients for Kodi, and some people seem to think that they are the same PVR backend software, but DVBViewer software is made by CM&V Hackbart which is not the same software as DVBLink, made by DVBLogic.
