Thanks for your superb job with this add-on! I'd just discovered it (arriving pretty late to the Kodi party, I know Wink) and immediately fell in love with it.

I have just one minor issue: if you could address it, I'd really appreciate it.

It's about TV4 (Swedish): the live version has been withdrawn from the website recently. However, there is still a live broadcast with "Nyhetsmorgon" (https://www.tv4play.se/program/nyhetsmorgon/3934015) and a couple of other programs, news only (https://www.tv4play.se/program/live). From what I see, those are not available in your add-on, or at least I have not found them.  Would you add it (or kindly point to it if it's already included)?

And another, more complicated issue, or maybe rather feature request (I've read you are not developing the app anymore, so I'm sorry if I'm asking too much). It would be great if there was an option in the add-on to automatically hide the content that is premium (on RTL XL, for example). This would save us from the false hope that it would be possible to watch something that is not available after all Wink.

The TV4 channel I can have a look. Please report this as a feature request at https://bitbucket.org/basrieter/xbmc-onl...tatus=open

Regarding RTL XL: you can already tell Retrospect to not show the premium items, so that should also work with RTL XL.

 To me this seems strange. Have you tried lowering the streaming speed in Retrospect? If you have 100 mbit down the server has nothing to do with it. It's working perfectly here and I have around 50 mbit down. (The router changes you made seem a bit paranoid. Smile )

 What was removed was the live channel , the live broadcasts of news are still availabe under "Livesändningar" (confusing with "live" I know).

Do not know if it was paranoid or not, but it has seamed to work, so either it was some router hack or just something weird going on with my Internet (Windows 10 do act up at  times though,so I've notised) ,So maybe that had a hand in the issue.

@Basje, thank you for your reply.  I'll report a feature request.

Regarding RTL Xl: stupidly enough, I have not found this feature before. However, as surprising as it may sound, premium items are still shown with this feature on. Should I somehow 'refresh' it or could it be a problem with some specific TV programs?

@Snah, that's what I thought, too, until I went under "Livesändingnar" while "Nyhetsmorgon" was broadcast, and I haven't found the stream there. I'll recheck it, just to be sure, but I don't think it was available. Does it work for you?

Oh, and strangely, at the moment the TV4 replay won't work for me at all. To be more precise, when I click on the folder, I get an 'Error retrieving the list of items', which never happened before. Hopefully this will go away Wink.

TV4 was fixed yesterday, and the RTL videos that are premium should be hidden. I can't tell that for the shows in RTL XL.
The channels TV4 Play and TV7 Play doesnt seem to work since yesterday. Keep getting "Error retrieving list of items....." when trying to open either of the two. Other channels work fine.

  So my question to you is: did you already installed the latest Retrospect (as there is NO more auto updating via Kodi). Visit this page to read and download: https://bitbucket.org/basrieter/xbmc-online-tv

It worked two mornings when I tested it. Still not working for you?
Hi Bas,

Can you also add TV Vlaanderen live TV ?
https://livetv.tv-vlaanderen.be/
This add-on gets about as much airtime as Youtube on my installation, but today it suddenly stopped working. Selecting any item from NPO gives a 'cannot start playback' message. Did something change? I have 4.1.7 alpha13 installed.

Debug log of trying to start something linked here.

EDIT: it seems NPO has changed their premium streams and now requires an account for everything. However, I can't put in username and password on channel settings, as my cursor disappears when highlighting that tab... how do I input these credentials?
