 It covers most countries in the world including the UK.
The rytec sources are probably the most reliable and fastest.

Yes you have to install busybox on Windows.

 Try typing after the grey box so your reply doesn't get mixed up with the quote.
Click the "Source" button to see how the posts and quotes are laid out to be more clear.

Slow down and read the instructions carefully.

If you install it from the source it will end up in the wrong directory.
Uninstall it, reboot kodi and install it from my repo.

There is no UK postcode setting.

You have to install the version of busybox for your device and operating system.

If you are on Windows follow the link in the Quick Start.
Here is a direct link to the busybox.exe for Windows. https://frippery.org/files/busybox/busybox.exe
Put it somewhere safe and point the busybody Setting to it.

You need it because the version of python in Kodi does not come with the library to decompress xz files.

I have no idea what you have done to get it to pop up Internet Explorer.

Slow down and read the instructions carefully.

 If you install it from source it will not put the files in the correct folder and will not work.
I expect your zip file contains a top level folder ending with -master.
It needs to be just plugin.program.xmltv.meld

Go into the addons folder and manually delete any folders beginning with plugin.program.xmltv.meld
Do the same in the userdata\addon_data folder.

Sometimes you need to uninstall my repo and install it again to pick up a new version of an addon.
I think there is some Kodi caching issue going on.

Make sure the version of xmltv Meld is 0.0.3.
I found a problem with UK rytec channels in 0.0.2.

Not sure what you have done, but I’ve just installed version 0.0.3 without any problems.

 It's busybox. I made a typo earlier.

xmltv Meld is an alternative to Webgrab+Plus.
It uses some freely available xmltv files, some of which were generated by other people using Webgrab, some came from satellite or cable epg information channels.

You can merge in any xmltv files you make yourself with Webgrab in the Custom section.

 You will have to do that by hand at the moment.
xmltv Meld generates a template file for you to start with:
userdata\addon_data\plugin.program.xmltv.meld\channels.m3u8

One day if I have some spare time I'll have a look at trying to add some automation to the addon.

You should only have to do it once if your urls don't change.

If you TV Guide Fullscreen it will try to do an automated match of your channels to your xmltv file.
