Why not just combine your playlists?
i have two sources one being my OTA from the fantastic eyetv IPTV. the second from an IPTV list i am giving a go.
is there a better way to do this?

thank you
Like I said you can just combine the various playlists you have into one file.

i am not sure how to do that,
the eyetv iptv uses a local address for example: (

the list is a .m3u file with listings as follows:
#EXTINF:0,[COLOR blue]Weather Channel US[/COLOR]

do i just add the eyetv iptv address into the list file?

is it that easy?

thanks for the help with this.
Pretty much, yes.
Or no, I guess you have to download that .m3u8 file and add the individual items from it to your main playlist file.
thank you
i do not know if or how that can be done.
i will ask in the eyetv iptv thread.
for now this is working.

thanks again
I don't think this works anymore
