    I have an Amazon Fire Stick and it took 2 to 3 hours to load the 4000+ channels from the m3u playlist file....
    I modified the list and cut out 80 percent of it to only load what I wanted to see but now the guide only shows
    channel names as "Unknown" with various numbers after them....
    I tried to add the suggested input variables of m3u_plus and hls to the url of the location file list i created
    from bit.ly and pastebin files and urls I created but couldn't get them to work...

    any ideas ??

    No, I'm running Kodi 16.1 jarvis.....

    i also noticed that the channel current programming showing is
    all blank as well... so I can't see what shows are playing.

    Almost figured it out... I added the custom additions to the end of the original url and then downloaded the resulting m3u which then has the custom addins embedded in the file... working so far i think except for the blank programming shows playing in the guide...

    thanks

    Not sure if you have solved this already, but I have done something similar to you to make it faster:
    - downladed latest m3u list
    - edit the list removing the channels you are not interested to (I used excel for this but if it's just about removing and not sorting - see below - you can do it directly in notepad)
    - reordered the channels according to my personal taste (here you will definitely need excel or similar as manually will drive you mad)

    Keep in mind that downloading the EPG from rapid site will take time as it is a very large file (120MB uncompressed last time I checked) so you might want to streamline this part as well (even if it is far from easy if you want to create your own tvguide.xml)

    Ciao,
