Hi,

Great addon, been using it for about a year now. The only problem I have is that the addon stops streaming when I close the addon. Is there a way to make it continue whatever is playing when it closes? It's mostly for when I'm listening to music and want to see what's on TV. When done with the addon, it stops the music, and I have to go start the playlist again. Is there a way to continue playing after the addon closes? And if not, could it be included in an update in the future?

Thanks for a great addon.

This addon is probably the one I use the most, which makes it even more frustrating that it suddenly won't start up any longer.. It happened suddenly..
Is anyone able to determine what is going on here? When I start up the addon it says: "Oops sorry about that! It was not possible to load program data, check settings or try again later..."
I have tried re-installing and check settings, but nothing works. I use the built-in yousee.tv source

EDIT: Ok don't think it's my end. Just installed tvguide on another maschine with a fresh install of Kodi 14.2. Same error. Please Tommy, fix this?

None of my machines will load the guide anymore, i'm using openelec, windows, and ubuntu. Ubuntu is running kodi 15.2.
Is there a fix or is the add-on dead for good?

I have tried with Kodi 16 Beta 4 on Ubuntu 15.04 - Same problem:

From Kodi.log:

By the way - the FTV Guide is working in my setup!

Hi Guys.
I am obviously missing something here and was hoping someone could help me out.
I don't actually have live TV running on my Kodi installation but was wanting to use the TV Guide addon as an EPG to save switching to the TV and using the terribly slow on board one.
I have installed the addon ok but I seem to be missing something in configuration.
I select XMLTV as the source and then URL
I am using freepg.tv and have pasted my unique url in to Kodi but keep getting an error that the settings aren't valid
I keep reading about grabbers. Do I need to configure one of these as well? I thought the URL of the source would work?
Any hints and tips would be appreciated.
Justin

I also want to use TV Guide without having live TV running on kodi. I stream live TV and would like to link this to TV guide. Is this possible?

Finally got it all working! Was no fault of the addon, but I spent a week battling to configure an xmltv grabber.
That said its now all working!
