e2m3u2bouquet 0.5.1

V 0.5.1 Minor update. The generated xml no longer has the streamUrl attribute. This means that your username & password is not in the xml file so custom mapping files can now easily be shared If you wish to map a DVB service to an IPTV bouquet (by using the DVB service reference with no stream url) then this can be done by setting the new clearStreamUrl attribute to true Full details of v0.5 release here Download latest release here

V0.4 OK been a couple of weeks but we have been busy. Latest version of the script is now available below or from the home page, goto the home page for install instructions etc. The script has come on a bit and is starting to be a bit more mature, some 500 lines of code compared to the initial release at 100 lines.

Enigma2 IPTV m3u to bouquet

E2m3u2bouquet This post is obsolete : Please see e2m3u2bouquet homepage for latest version Background Bit of a side project this one, but following recent developments seemed a shame not to be getting the best out of the VU+ solo2 box. Long story short there are some good IPTV providers out there, however the offering enigma2 wise seems to be a giant m3u file that you import into a single bouquet or manually configure with E-channeliser. Both reasonable approaches but a bit lacking in usability and some what time consuming. Anyway a couple of nights research and a bit of messing about and... Read more
