My advice is using GSE IPTV app. Works great with epg and overall useability. Will match the feel and look of the Apple TV in general. GSE is acting up weird for some users, but a fresh install of the App you should be fine. Check out the tutorial in the forum

Hi,

the app crashes since a few days on epg update / download as the record number seems to have increased far beyond 200000 records. Before it always stayed sub 200k. Looks like cap has been reached there. Any advice on how to fix this? Is there a limit or selection one can make for what stations one needs epg in order to keep the record number below a certain threshold?

any tips would be greatly appreciated.

thx

Ludi

I ran into this issue today myself. Decided to create my own EPG XML using webgrabber and only including the channels i watch. Then i scheduled that fetch once every night and placed the file on a local web server (on my pc), so my ATV 4 can reach it at all times.

Made it for the swedish channels (few missing).

Probably a RAM issue with the app (bad garbage collection?) that makes it crash with too many items.

Hey!

I noticed somewhere that you should be able to change default audio track by using the attribute:
audio-track="swe"

(In the m3u file for a specific channel) e.g.:

#EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="Eurosport HD SE" tvg-name="Eurosport HD SE" tvg-logo="http://secure.clientportal.link/picons/eurosport1uk.png" audio-track="swe",Eurosport HD SE

This does not seem to be the case tho. Does anyone know if this is possible and I'm doing something wrong?

Also tried with "sv", "eng" and "2".

Eurosport HD SE is still in Norwegian default though.

Thanks for reading and in advance :).

How does one get subtitles to work?
When you're watching a channel, Push touchfield on remote, then Channel information shows up, then swipe to icon left to the "movie reel" icon. If they're available, then you can activate them. And if available, choose between different lanquages.

Note: Some channels use teletext subtitles, and they dont work with KODI and IPTV SImple PVR.
Note 2: Some Scandinavian channels use hardcoded subtitles. They can't be changed or removed.

NO. But you can swipe UP (+) or DOWN (-) in the touch field to change channels. Works great and fast zapping. At least in MrMC (Forked KODI) on ATV4 :blush:

Hi,
Wondering about the same, also with subtitles. Is it somehow it is possible to force this + the correct audiotrack throug custom m3u files?

I am using AppleTV4

I have noticed that the method above is available for LG TV with the SmartIP TV app. But I am looking for a solution on appletv 4.


Thanks

Hi guys,

I have been using this website for nearly a year now and they are flawless. Updates come really fast with each update of Kodi. Perfet for using the IPTV client

https://www.koditvbox.ca

This works, and there is no messing around udpating weekly etc.
