Some of these IPTV channel lists get pretty massive, and sadly out of the thousands of channels, maybe 50 at best get used. Would there be a way we would have access to delete individual channels after adding the M3U?



Right now the work around is adding the channels I watch to favorites, but the issue is, if I allow access to somebody else to setup IPTV (a user on my EMBY server) it starts that whole process of sorting through a thousand channels and favoriting the 50 they may use. Id prefer to just delete the useless ones so theres not 950 wasted channels on the guide to start with.

The easiest way is to download the m3u. Edit it using Notepad ++ or similar editor removing the channels you do not want.

Save it to newfile.m3u

In emby edit the m3u tuner and change the file name to newfile.m3u

Restart emby and refresh guide.

Wait 10 mins and test.

I use http://www.iptv-epg.com/... you load your M3U in there, edit whatever you want and this service will give you the modified M3U with EPG... it's not free, but for IPTV it's a pretty good service
