OK so the wait is finally over, the first of many new NaN add-on  releases is here and what a cracker it is!

TV Portal is certainly more for the nerds than the noobs but once setup you'll have a very simple to use TV Guide with some very unique standout features...

Fast & Responsive: Unlike certain other guides TVP uses a fast database system rather than slow xml text files. Loading and navigating is now a painless experience.

Fully Customisable: Add ANY Channel, either import your own XMLTV files for your own listings or just add dummy channels with no data. The latter is great for linking directly to add-ons in the EPG or adding 24/7 channels.

Dynamic: Using the brilliant Super Favourites add-on you can add any stream from any add-on to the TVP folder. Like magic that channel will suddenly appear in the EPG with full listing info!

Filter Categories: Got a huge guide with hundreds or even thousands of channels? No longer do you have to spend ages trawling through the listings, if you just want sports channels just click left in the guide and chose the sports category. Want educational and kids categories to show? No problem just tick both those categories and like magic they appear! You can fully customise your own categories via TVP Tools too.

Channel Surfing: Ever pressed one of the directional buttons only for your live steam to freeze? No need to worry about that anymore as TVP has an on screen mini guide which appears when you press up/down/left/right. Just like you get with any good cable provider you'll see a mini guide appear where you can scroll through channels, see what's on and switch channel. All while not having to navigate away from the channel you're currently watching.

Auto Sync: Synchronise one setup with multiple devices even if they aren't on the same network. This is a premium feature which requires login but unlike certain other sites we DO NOT charge for the premium features. You just need to enter your NaN login info - as you know it's free to sign up to the forum and takes a matter of minutes.

Plus Much More...
There are many more features we're working on and no doubt a few I've forgotten to mention. An adult filter is currently a WIP and you can already hide XXX channels from the categories, import of online or local playlists works too as does PVR integration (for the most part). Make sure you subscribe to the YouTube channel for the latest updates and of course the latest updates will be announced here on the forum first Smile

Help Needed: First of all thanks to naquada who created many of the original channel icons for OTTV and FXB78 who done lots of the skinning - you guys have made it nice and simple for the community to help out. If anyone out there wants to try their hand at skinning for the EPG or creating channel icons that will be a great help, there are literally hundreds of channels that need icons made! I will post more details and templates soon.

Credits: Thanks to twinther for the original TV Guide code, all those that have helped with skinning and artwork and of course everyone involved in testing.

Install Instructions: Get it from the noobsandnerds repo (programs section). If you don't yet have that repo installed just as this to your file manager as a source:
http://noobsandnerds.com/portal

Source Code: The TVP add-on has been forked from script.tvguidedixie but one of the team behind that add-on has made it clear they do not want to be associated with this fork in any way. You can find the source code of the fork here.

Absolutely brilliant! Thanks for doing this, and thanks to spoyser, dixie dean and the crew from OnTapp. It takes a bit to set up but is absolutely worth it. 

I do have a few requests if possible....

- The ability to add our own ini files is nice. Can you add support for online ini files? I have an online ini file for ccloud which updates every 5 min due to the tokens changing in some channels.

- Can you add support for the Meta addon? It searches the addons directly, eliminating the token issue and the need to update ini files. It's just a few simple code changes that are needed. You can find them here. After that you just need to add this to the ini...
Code:
[plugin.video.meta]

*=plugin://plugin.video.meta/live/<channel>

Either of these would help with the token issue in cCloud. The latter would help with many addons. 

Thanks

Great to see you on here bud, all very good suggestions and I don't see any issues with the online ini thing and the meta add-on is actually something Quihico suggested too so will certainly take a look into it - thanks for the piece of code. Unfortunately I have a lot of code to finish off for the other new add-ons coming out but will create a little wish-list / todo list for this one and add those things to it Smile

You can import an xml on any device but if you're looking to create your own xml file to import I don't know of any Android apps that do this. There may well be but it's not a system I use (unless I absolutely have to!). I use mc2xml on a windows setup and also my ubuntu setup for grabbing listings, you may well be able to find an xml by doing some googling - I never looked to be honest. Wouldn't be surprised if there's a fair few available out there somewhere.

Thanks for the link to the meta code, I have just tried it out and although I had to alter the code slightly from the FTV guide so it works properly with TVP it's working brilliant and was very simple to add Smile. I've not had chance to play with meta myself but I know the team have been raving about it and I can now see why. Question is now... is it even worth keeping the ini files, aren't they a bit redundant now? Maybe we'd be better off linking to a url that contains a zip of "players" for meta and just have it auto download the new zip and extract whenenver a change is made. What do you think?
