Live TV with Categories


Recommended Posts

Just to add to this I was looking for just this I wanted to combine streaming my local media and IPTV to my smart devices, this seamed perfect IPTV support EPG recording etc... install it set it up pay for a sub then find that theres no channel management so with my provider I've got 40k odd channels (they have a lot of VoD as well) With categorys I could manage them but without that its simply to much. No search feature for content and no option to hide channels makes its very unfriendly to use.

 

I guess I will be cancelling my sub until I can find something else. Its really a shame as im after something to replace a STB, so channels with categories and management, seaching / epg, recording, series recording etc. Emby was close but no cigar it seams and apprently 3 years down the line its not coming any time soon either.

Many of us are using a program called xteve, to manage this for us, until this feature arrives - www.xteve.de

There is a thread on this forum, which is dedicated to this.

You can remove all of your VODs and reduce your channels to just those countries channels that you want.

It's a slightly modified version of Locast2Plex.

It requires that the person has an account on Locast.org and is a donator which is $5 per month.

Man if this was implemented you’d have my annual subscription for life... was looking to see if this feature existed and see you’ve all been tugged along for years. Hopefully devs actually mean it when they say they’re working on it now but doesn’t seem true... To me this is such a base feature for M3U playlist support. Without it the feature is a glorified USB media player.

I had premier for a while expecting this but months and months passed so I cancelled it. Hopefully they are actually working on it since I'm with you I would have subscription for life!!

Luke has added something cool to the code for the next Beta that will be nice for many of you wanting some way to group channels.
Stay tuned for more info on this.

This is great to hear ! Thanks 👍

Would it be cheeky to ask now about potentially adding the ability to login with xtream API instead of only m3u ? 🤪

Yes as mentioned earlier, Emby apps will need to be updated to use the new features. We're getting those updates out as quickly as we can. Thanks.

This is available in the current beta release on the Shield.  There is a new button on the toolbar where you can select the tags to filter by in the guide.
