KODI & Xtream Editor Addon

The addon helps you to save the channel-lists (M3U and EPG link) via a QR code into the settings of the PVR IPTV Simple Client. However, you should first adjust the "EPG ID" in your channel list to the EPG source you are using.

Prerequisite for a functioning EPG is the EPG-ID assignment

Install Xtream Editor Plug-in:

  • Download the ZIP file to your computer.
  • In the KODI settings, enable the option "Unknown sources"
  • Save the file to the device where KODI is installed. I use the directory "userdata" in my video.
  • Install the addon. How to manually install an ZIP Addon can be found here

How to use the addon:

  • "PVR IPTV Simple Client" must be installed and activated
  • Open the Xtream Editor addon
  • You will see an APP code and QR-Code.
  • Scan the QR code or go directly to the web page. Link your Line or List ID with this code here.
  • In the addon click "Load and save settings"

Advanced EPG configuration

Create a file "advancedsettings.xml" in the folder "/storage/.kodi/userdata/". If already present, take the values from the example. This ensures that the EPG download limit is not exceeded.

This step is very important. Some KODI installations try to load the EPG data every 5 minutes. We have a download limit (50 times/day). This has caused many problems in the past. A user has solved the problem with the "advancedsettings.xml". Since there are no other disadvantages we recommend these settings!  It is very bad for the performance of our servers and also for your network at home (bandwidth). This would mean that 35 MB will be loaded every 5 minutes (10 GB/day).
