A customer found a fix for the problem where the game froze after starting:
Right-click on the icon of TV Manager 2 (either on your desktop or Start -> Program Files -> TV Manager 2 -> Play TV Manager 2). In the popup menu choose “Properties”. In the next popup choose “Compatibility” from the top menu. Then click the box where it says something along the lines of: “Run in 640×480 pixels mode”. Afterwards click on the same icon (if you click on a different icon, you might have to repeat those settings before) and run the game. The game now switches to the game´s 1024×768 pixels screen resolution and you should be able to play fine.
This might work for people having problems with other games from Niels Bauer Games too.
