It would be great to be able to configure channel groups in LiveTV, which can be selected in the guide view (maybe as tabs) so that we can more quickly navigate to preferred channels using the d-pad.  Perhaps start with Favorites by default, but be able to add custom groups (similar to collections) which we can add channels to (Network, Premium, Basic Cable, Kids, News etc.).

If we gave preference to favorite channels and frequently watched channels, would you even need channel groups?

Luke,

 

It would still be nice as an option.

 

With WMC I have a PRIMETIME Channel group that only shows major networks and fits on one page without the need to scroll. (Big deal in WMC layout). I also have a CLASSICS Channel group that just pulls together the classic TV and Movie channels. It is nice to have these custom separate groupings that a favorite or frequently watched default will not always cover.

I have noticed that it has been a while since anyone has asked again for this feature. I am currently using iptv-epg and the option for groups is great. I understand the use of favorites but having another option for groups would be an absolutely fantastic feature to add.

Agreed. Sports channels are an example where having a group makes sense. I can quickly pull up a list of all my sports channels and browse through to pick which event I want to watch.

I agree that channel groups would be very useful.  The shield scrolls very quickly but it is still tedious with a few hundred channels.  The Roku is just a nightmare because of its slowness.

If this is a difficult task for @ebr and @Luke  can we get something easy in the meantime...    Like a colored bar across the guide grid that says the group name in the m3u not what is in emby.  

 

so i would see like a bar across the grid (using one of the channels rows) that says       Sports        then as im scrolling through the guide i know everything below that bar is sports channels...  until i get to the next colored bar that says       USA PPV's       then i know the following channels are PPV channels, etc....     that should be pretty easy right?

I think the channel groups would be a great idea the favorite channels and frequently watched are great but to be able to go to the sports tab, or movies tab would be a time saver.

the answer to this is clearly yes. Wmc did it so why are we even questioning it??
