    there is something else you should know Harry.

    Using the m3u Playlist option , you will have two ways to connect to the server.

    One way is how you are doing it by downloading a hard copy of the .m3u file and loading it thru USB device.
    There is only really one advantage in using this method and that is you can edit your playlist, because after all it is a hardcopy

    With the Playlist on your desktop open it with Notepad and then you will see a massive amount of data appear. These are the channels and VODs
    You can delete channels or arrange channels or even rename channels.
    It is a massive amount of work thou and can be daunting
    I have done alot of this over the years and do have some copies if you are interested, but we would have to do that thru private messaging.
    Or I can explain how to do it on your own, if you wish

    Okay, so there is that. But the main disadvantage of using a hardcopy is that when the server updates the channels, perhaps adding or removing some channels and maybe add some VODs,
    You will not see these updates while using the hardcopy, unless you get a fresh copy of the m3u playlist hardcopy. And if you have alot of clients, well that could be troublesome, if you follow my thinking.

    The second method is thru the m3u Playlist URL, which will give you the server updates automatically.
    You would not be able to edit anything, but the channels and VODs will always be updated and that is done automatically.

    With either method, the EPG URL does work.

        It takes more time to read this entire posted tutorial, then it does to do the actual process,,
        I did it. This is exactly what I was looking for (even more now that you told me it's best to use url login for auto-updates).
        I'm glad you gave me all this detailed info, also regarding the mouse. Good thing my buzzbox has two usb ports. I did have to switch to my regular remote to make navigation easier. I usually just use the arq100. btw, one thing I noticed was that I could not get the epg url to paste until finally I typed in anything in the field and then highlighted over it and the CUT, COPY, PASTE options appeared. The left click was not working for me.

        Thanks again, dude! You've been a big help.

          Nice work, yea
          I had noticed the same thing when using the BuzzTV device. I think when I wrote up that guide it was with a different device. Each device probably has a thing or two slightly different.

          I saw something else too that will save some time, and that is you can find the Total Commander app in your App Store onboard the Buzz box.

          App Store > Categories > Tools > Total Commander
