Hi hope somebody here can point me in the right direction

I am new to xbmc and would like to know how I can add sports channels like sky sports etc to xbmc.

I have read on various forums about adding .xml files etc but cannot find for the life of me a tutorial to do this, I did post this question on another xbmc forum but no help was given.

I have added sports devil but get a script error when I try to use it, I have also read that it is not very reliable.

Any help much appreciated.

Thankyou

Not sure if it's the right direction.. but here goes. http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=100031 is the forum for 'sports devil' you might get some satisfaction there. You might just consider streaming the channels you want through something like 'Live Streams' it's pretty esay to add to the .xml lists and there's tons of stuff, and is updated (a lot of dead links as addresses move around like water) by users like you. http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=97116 not sure if it's in the repo anymore but it still works for me under Eden, and I've seen sports channels from around the world.

There is a common library of links, check in the Live Streams forum for the links... it used to be updated almost weekly.. you might have to read from the last post backward to find the links, but you'll pikc-up a lot of tips & tricks along the way.

Looks like both links concern themselves with Live Streams. I didn't want to drown you 3 posts in...
