Its reasonably straight forward, you add the path of your xmltv url within the settings area of IPTV, then more importantly you ensure that the name of each channel in your m3u file correspond with the xml file. (note: addon supports local xmltv files as well as web urls)

Then if epg is up to date with one or more of the channels in your m3u everything should just work.
(Also dont forget to update EPG in live TV settings option after setting up and/or making changes under IPTV settings)

Carefully re-read this post in this thread from developer of IPTV (afedchin), its very clear about what to do with exception of icon naming in m3u which now must include extension (i.e. BBC World.png BBC1 World.jpg)

I personally only use tvg-name tag which I then believe is only item within #EXTINF:-1 string which must align with channel name in xmltv file

Here is a simple example of what information I use in my m3u, entering a valid channel stream url below each channel #EXTINF:-1 entry.

#EXTM3U tvg-shift=0

#EXTINF:-1 tvg-name="BBC World" tvg-logo="BBC World.png" group-title="Working Channels",[COLOR blue]BBC World[/COLOR]
http://.....................
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-name="BBC News" tvg-logo="BBC News.png" group-title="Working Channels",[COLOR red]BBC News[/COLOR]
http://.....................

Just to be clear, I am using a personal stations.m3u and epg.xml stored locally on my network. (Internet URL's provided by other users, as in your example youtube video typically have a short shelf life of working availability)

Hey there.

Thanks for the hard work.

I'm also experiencing the problem with another PVR addon enabled.
I am using NextPVR for DVB-T, which works perfect. As soon as I enable IPTVSimple, all the channels from NextPVR disappear.
When I disable IPTVSimple - they automatically reappear.

Is there any way to solve this? I really want to use IPTVSimple but just can't give up on my DVB-T...

Thank you Smile

Hi All,
I just start palyng with that plugin, and I used webgrab+ to get EPG data for my chanels.
So i found thate in generated XMLTV file there are paths to chanels logos, which was not displayed.

I prepare a patch to be able to use that data. If owner of plugin can integrate it in next releases, it will be nice.
Tested on linux kodi and android spmc.

link will expire after a mounth - Git patch.

Hello,

I'm using webgrab+ to generate xmltv files.
Let's say one of line looks like
<programme start="20140904163000 +0200" stop="20140904173000 +0200" channel="SkySports1.uk">

but iptvsimple plugin shows me that program stars at 16:30, so it didn't look to +0200. Is it possible to make it to look to that +0200?

I now that is possible to add timeshift to all channels in the iptvsimple configuration but it's not good for me because I'm using different websites for schedules so they provide me times from different timezones..

Yes, but you need to add the timeshift to the .m3u file. For example:
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="TV1" tvg-logo="TV1.png" tvg-shift="2" group-title="MyChannels",TV1

@Jean2014 Impossible to say without knowing the URL and trying it for myself. Have you looked in xbmc.log file?

Does anyone else have this problem? I run MX Linux Gotham 13.2 on ATV1200 and I am using a popular remote channel list. When I restart XBMC it always fails to load the channel list from remote site first time, but then works if I disable then enable LiveTV. I don't get the problem when I cache the channel list, but that means it doesn't get updated. Any ideas how to fix this?
