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.
There isn't a Kodi repo; just my GitHub one. Wink
Very Cool, looks great!

I really like your Channel-Icons.
Please tell me where can I get it...

Thanks for your work!!!
I have a huge collection on my server at home. I'll upload them later.

Reworked the channel OSD. This fits better.
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?
Sorry, I still did not updated my BelloFredo skin to Jarvis and the birth of my baby is estimated in 6 weeks. Don't really have time for bigger projects atm
Why you don't use the newest version of Hitchers fTV?
It's based on his latest version . or respectively all changes were merged?
as for channel icons, you can grab/build them here https://github.com/picons/picons-source
