Yes, exclusively.

Thanks for clearing that up.

For anyone with library turned off looking for an easy way to create a playlist which is always up to date is to make it on the fly:
  • Select the group folder you want to play and then long press the OK button on the remote to bring up the context menu.
  • Pick Play. That'll create a temporary playlist which lists all playable files in the folder, including in any subfolders.
  • You can organize and navigate this playlist like any other.
Note: Just create a new temporary playlist the next time. The only downside is that you can't turn temporary playlists into a channel. If you save them, they'll just be normal playlists that don't update.

Hello, there was a solution to implement a smart playlist with next TV show episode?

I have the same question here, does it work for you?

You have to add the add-on library to the kodi library, with a link from the add-on settings, I try to do it in my tv, but it did work because did have the space, so I'm not sure if it will work

You open the add-on like *REMOVED*, go to the settings, library section and copy the path, and then go to the kodi videos menu, files, add videos, and in "add a video source" you paste the path you have copied, and that should do it

As per our forum rules (wiki), do not use or even mention piracy-facilitating addons on this forum, or there could be trouble.

Is there a way to have kodi show tv channel instead of playlists?

when on the home screen of my Shield, I'd really like to see preferred TV channels there.

Nope, no way to do this with Live TV Channels.
Best options available on Live TV Home Screen:-
1) Recently Played Channels are displayed which I guess could well be your most preferred TV channels.
2) Goto system>>>PVR & Live>>>General>>>Group Manager. There you can create a favourites Channel Group and add channel(s) to this group. Channel Groups are shown on Live TV Home Screen and will open guide guide screen for specific channel groups when selected.

Hi, I have a playlist on my Android TV home screen as a channel. Is there any way how to set a behaviour when i select an item from this playlist? At the moment, if I click on any item from the playlist, Kodi launches and information screen about the movie is shown. I would like the movie to be started immediately unless I would have to click on Play button on information screen.
