After getting alot of questions regarding KODI and EPG on KODI i tought i would put together a little simple guide
for the Community.

This Guide assumes you already have KODI installed on your device.

THINGS YOU NEED...

  • KODI installed on your device of choice.
    [*]Your M3U link or file.
    [*]IPTV Simple client ADDON installed.



Also.. If you want your Channels to be grouped by country you should always use M3U with options link or file.

1. Open IPTV Simple client ADDON and choose " Configure "

2. Choose " Remote Path " and enter your M3U Playlist URL. Make sure " cache M3U at local storage " is NOT ticked.

3. Choose " Remote Path " and enter -- http://clientportal.link/xmltv.php?username=xxxxxxx&password=xxxxxx -- Replace " xxx " With username and Password from your M3U .

4. Press " OK " And then make sure the ADDON is Enabled ( its should read disable when its enabled ;) ) .

5. Go into " Settings " And Choose " PVR & LIVE TV " .

6. Make sure theese " boxes " are ticked and last thing you do is choose " Clear Data ".


7. Restart KODI and now you have Channels and full EPG.

After step 6 please add step 7

Step 7 On the left pane go to Guide tab, also select clear data.


If this still do NOT work.
Uninstall IPTV Simple client
Clear data as step 6 and 7 again
Open filemanager go to Profile directory, AddOn_Data, if pvr IPTV Simple client folder exists in there delete it.
Reinstall IPTV Simple client and configure as descibed.

Hi guys! I have used Kodi/Simple client for many years, and know well how to set it up. Today Kodi crashed, and I had to reinstall it on my Nvidia Shield.

After reinstalling it, I could not get simple client/channels to load. I have tried clear data, deleting the addon_data-folder, even factoryreseting the Shield. The stream works fine on other apps on the device, but I want to use Kodi.

Any suggestions?

It was deactivated (as it should be). I tried activating it just for the experiment, but that made no difference. I have tried everything I can think of.. Refreshing password, MPEGTS/HLS,..

Hi there!

Are you using the XML link from this with your username and password from your m3u ?

Seems there is an issue downloading full EPG on KODI if the M3U you are using also has a MAC adress assigned to it on the dashboard.

Solotion:

  • Contact you reseller and have them remove the MAC adress from your line ( m3u ) if assigned, Be aware that if you are using a MAGbox or STBemu this will no longer work.
  • Ask the reseller to change the password of the line.
  • Insert the new credentials into KODI.
  • Clear data under PVR&Live TV.
  • Restart KODI.
  • Now you should have EPG.
Regards.

I've removed the mac that I use on a mag box. Still no go..
I have not changed user/pass..actually don't see how that could help, but will ask my reseller to do so anyway.
Will report back.

And thanks for trying to help..:)
