They have always worked.
Just wait and check back later if you can't access the channel.
They have a max viewers limit now.
I'm not sure what the limit is, but probably 50 or something of that nature.

i'm also an openelec user and i just added the uk default.py into the zip (overwriting the original one) before installation and it works fine for me.
Hi, is there any way I can add a sopcast channel(s) ?
just wanted to say that this addon is pure awesomeness!!!

[gentle request] would it be possible for the devs to add an "italy.xml", I can watch them in a browser, but it would be great to have them on my htpc....
television channels that do streaming are:
http://www.video.mediaset.it/ - these are berlsuconi's channles rete4, canale5, italia1 etc.
http://www.rai.tv/ - these are the state channels rai1, rai2, rai3 etc.
[/gentle request]

Thanks a lot

Blackoutworm- Thanks for the reply.
Your right, they have always worked, but it always buffers, il have to keep trying i suppose!
Ive tried every channel listed and I can only get 5 to work, Sky News, BBC2, Dave & Both Classic Movies. The question I have is, is this normal or do I have something wrong at this end ?

tvsectors streaming isnt working have look

I couldn't find this answered but its a long thread so I apologize if it has, but I have an NPVR server with my ATSC card attached to it.
You can stream channels from the server by going to for example:


Can this add-on allow me to put all my local HD channels in & stream them?

Hi mate,

that site is blocked for me at work so cant check what you are trying to show me until I get home

So any stream that relies on tvsector is not going to work?
I think the majority of the sky channels withing livetv are tv sector links arent they? Particularly the sky movies channels etc. Any fix for this or do we just have to wait until tvsector comes back online.Big Grin
I wish if you could make a "Kids" section of the streams or could anyone give a guide / tut on how to do this yourselves
