fTV skin modification with full working and integrated LiveTV part

A lot of you were begging Hitcher to implement LiveTV to his awesome fTV skin. So... I had a few hours left to take care of it Wink

Please also note that a lot ot is handled and displayed differently compared to the original skin (personal preference).

___________________________________

Important:
  • Not compatible to Hitcher's official repo version, sorry.
  • The skin has its own skin ID. So you can keep both, Hitchers fTV and my mod. Just take care of different skin folder names.
  • I did not take care of PVR based radio. Hello? We are in 2015. Use the internet radio addons Wink

It's just for sharing. No other mods will be done.

Important:
- Made for Jarvis (Kodi 16)
- Not compatible to Hitcher's official repo version, sorry
- I did not take care of PVR based radio. Hello? We are in 2015. Use the internet radio addons Wink

Wow, looks great!
Something jumped out at me in your "disclaimer", you mentioned Hitcher's official repo. I didn't realize Hitcher has a repo that would auto update his add-ons including ftv. This whole time I've been downloading the different versions of the ftv skin manually, I had no idea there was a repo.

Nice Skins. I like the ftv-Skin, but i needed the PVR. So your skin is the solution Smile

I will test the Skin tomorrow.

Download for the Channel-Logos would be nice Wink Smile

Hey, this looks really sharp!

Tell me, would you have any interest in helping me create a similar LiveTV section for my DroidTV skin?
