timmmay:

 

Can anyone give a bit of a dummies guide to getting this working in Kodi? I'm having a try but it's really not simple. The guides I've found suggest you need to find a PVR add on (which one?), maybe install a plug-in, etc.

 

 

 

 

There seems to have been a few addons mentioned....but I haven't seen a single comment on "use this repo and install this addon"  which is probably what you're after.

I have a question on quality.  Yesterday I tried the streams noted in this thread directly in VLC and the quality was worse than my DVB-S feed, and kept breaking up, to the point I changed back to DVB-S.

Later on I tried the streams in Kodi (I already had the plugin and LOVE how it updates automatically to add the new channels, thanks!) and the quality was far improved - definitely looking like the 720p its advertised as.

Has anyone else noticed this?  Are the streams dynamic, or are there different streams for different bitrates?  Anyone else had problems running this in VLC?

If you open up the TVNZ 1 m3u8 link in notepad etc you will see that it contains several links of different quality. In tvheadend im using the 720p links directly as it isn't liking the playlist style.

Thought I was going mad as I couldn't get it going. It was that 'Enable'/'Disable' box that got me. How intuitive is it that it should be set to 'Disable'? 

 

I obviously missed something in the logic of that!

 

Anyway, thanks apsattv for your great work. This will be handy in my den being able to have access to these channels from my computer.

To get this to work with the inbuilt Kodi IPTV Simple player, you just need to edit the M3U file so instead of this for example:

 

#EXTINF:0, TVNZ 2

 

it has this:

 

#EXTINF:0 tvg-logo="http://www.XXX.nz/XXX.jpg", TVNZ 2

 

where http://www.XXX.nz/XXX.jpg is replaced with the URL to the logo.

 

A good source of TV logo pictures is the Freeview page here: http://www.freeviewnz.tv/tvguide/whats-on/

 

 

 

You can also add tvg-id="blahblah" as well to make it link up with an XMLTV guide, there is one for FreeviewNZ that comes up with a quick Google. Open the XMLTV file on your computer and you will find the channel ID's it uses. This URL can be entered in the same Kodi menu as where you choose the M3U file.

 

An example of a full #EXTINF is:

 

#EXTINF:0 tvg-id="XXXXX" tvg-name="XXXXX" tvg-logo="http://www.XXX.tv/xx.jpg", TVNZ 1

The master.m3u8 have substreams inside them you can verify this by saving rather than opening the .m3u8 file and renaming it .txt and opening in notepad.

 

Note the backup server 261789-b

 

That's why its usually best to link to the master.m3u8 and you should get whatever is best for your bandwidth.

https://xxx.co.nz/xxx.m3u8

 

 

When I put the m3u together it was intended to be compatible on all different devices satellite receivers,mediaplayers, tv and android apps not just kodi hence leaving out logos and epgs.

 

I'll have another play around later

I think most other players would just ignore it wouldn't they?

I tried 2 and 3 but kept saying could not connect to network server, (Andriod Sony TV)

 

Funny because I was, and Tv said I was connected to the Net. tried about 4-5 times, even deleting and stating again,

 

Did I miss something? 

 

thanks
