This will be the home for a few lists that will automatically populate channel. Unlike livestream that aggregated illegal direct streams, my list will primarily be made up of youtube channels, playlists, rss feeds and XBMC plugin configurations that work.
Your job is to maintain the list! amend the lists... add, remove links. PseudoTV Live will build directly off these lists. Please try not to leech, if you have a working personal configuration... share with the community!

What's the difference between PseudoTV and PseudoTV Live?
Jason102 created one of the most popular programs for XBMC. Which should be credited for bringing in a huge influx of new users via articles published by lifehacker, etc...
That being said this plugin in no way tries to shadow the work started by Jason, but merely to add options that deviate from the original nature of his program.
To my knowledge there has been two other PseudoTV spinoffs Jtucker's "TV-Time" which was abandoned a number of years ago; and Angrycamel's "LiveTV" Mod which allowed Hdhomerun w/ XMLTV EPG Info. Till now the "LiveTV" mod has been kept functional and up to date by me. Which is what lead to my revival of lost features and new ones. This plugin attempts to bring old features back, and new features forward; such as added tuner support, live internet feeds, rss and strm support and auto channel population.
In short the two plugins differ in that PseudoTV was designed for local media. PseudoTV Live adds tuner and internet features in addition to local media.
