One issue , I try to input a link at EPG -> Sources -> XMLTV and map channels manually , but button sources is greyed or with a red cross in a ball , it means the free version cannot input such EPG link for manual mapping ?
please kindly advise, thanka , Pedro


EPG data for IPTV:

If your IPTV ISP also provides an EPG data in XMLTV format, then you may add a link to xmltv file at IPTV Tuner Settings. EPG data will be automatically mapped to IPTV channels, only if tvg-id tag is available at xmltv file.
Otherwise you will need to add a link at EPG -> Sources -> XMLTV and map channels manually.

Seems the TVMosaic Plus license is not activated. Try to activate at least a Trial version then you should be able to work with all features, XMLTV as well.

XMLTV with is set at the EPG -> Sources-> XMLTV is updated each 12 hours by default. There you may set your custom update time.
The IPTV is scanned once and only rescanned for VODs if such are available at the m3u. Channels may be rescanned only manually.
