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
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).
