Thanks for that styx-n-stones. At least I've moved forward a little
Live tv still isn't showing on the home screen menu bar so I've had to set Kodi to open with live tv. The other problem is that a lot of the link aren't working.
I came across a good add on called 'sparky's stream' which has about 95% of the channels I want that are working. I just have to find if there is an m3u file for it. Or perhaps find the code for the add on and try to put together my own m3u file.
I would love to be able to actually watch something on Kodi one day. But so far I seem to spend most of my time trying to get it to work or configuring settings lol.
