Blog & Discussion thread:

Preview Beta for Kodi Matrix:
Bugs will be present; System instability possible, but unlikely.

  • Kodi Matrix (Nightly)
  • Kodi's PVR & LiveTV configured the same as this screenshot. You're welcome to test different configurations, Please let me know if I can soften these requirements. 
  • Local Content ie. Local TV & Movies already scraped to Kodi's Library.
  • Willingness to supply debugging logs and constructive feedback.

Beta Tasks:
  • Download the preview beta:
  • Create 10 "Predefined Channels" (no more than 10 for easy log comprehension). THX
  • Configure Settings to your preferences, Verify "Debugging" is enabled under "Advanced". Be sure to also enable debugging in Kodi.
  • If you're using existing M3U/XMLTV files, please test "Import" in PTVL's settings.
  • Roughly 30s after creating a channel, your new channels will be available via EPG.
  • Use Kodi's EPG... Keep track of any issues experienced be it technical or general feedback.
  • Post all issues and feedback here:
Thanks for participating!!

Known Issues:
  • Multiple PVR backends supported; However, you must set "Client Priorities"  under Kodis "PVR & LiveTV" settings. Follow directions below to clear gudedata after setting priority.
  • Blank EPG cells; Kodi's EPG data is malformed; Enter Kodis "PVR & LiveTV" settings, navigate to "Guide" and click "Clear data".
  • Context Menu may be unavailable while viewing EPG.  To enable go do Kodis "PVR & LiveTV" then "Guide" and changing the default select action to "show context menu".

General Information:
  • For "Multi-Room", A single instance of PseudoTV Live is needed. Under PseudoTV Live's settings "Options" change the file location to a shared path. On your client device install PseudoTV Live but do not configure, instead; configure IPTV Simple to use those files. All instances of Kodi must be configured for sharing. ie. Shared/Mapped Drives and mySQL DB.
  • After creating channels you'll find a folder called "logos" in the same directory selected in settings. Place custom logos here!! They will override logos PseudoTV Live has found for you. The image must be *.png and is case sensitive to the channel name.

Current Features:
  • Predefined Channels based on Kodi's library content categorized by; TV Shows, TV Networks, TV Genre, Movie Genre, Movie Studios, Mixed Genre.
  • Automatic Channel logos, sourced from Kodi resource packs.
  • Optional video overlay to display channel bug and other pending features.
  • "Play onDemand" context menu option to skip "Pseudo" Live content; for "onDemand" playback.
