A VPN is becoming ever more essential. Whether it be for unlocking the full potential of the internet, or just to get the privacy that we all have the right to. Connecting to a VPN has not always been easy using certain hardware/software with Kodi. This is where VPN Manager for Kodi comes in to play. This addon created by Zomboided is a adaption, and inspired by one of MetalKettle’s addons, VPN for OpenElec.

VPN Manager for Kodi has many benefits over it’s predecessor. Namely the ease of the auto connect feature at boot up, and the many different VPN providers that it supports. Two of our favourites here at KodiPiGuide is PIA and IP Vanish. Both of these are supported and you can find the links on down the page to get you setup ready to use VPN Manager.

using VPN Manager you can even setup multiple VPN accounts at the same time, and have different ones run depending on what addon’s you are using.

VPN Manager Requirements

Current platforms supported are:

  • OpenElec (v5 onwards)
  • LibreElec (v7 onwards)
  • Linux (OSMC, Raspbian etc)
  • Windows (v7 onwards)

Android based systems are not currently supported.

VPN Manager relies on OpenVPN. OpenElec v7 onwards and LibreElec v5 onwards already include OpenVPN. If you have previous versions then you will need to install OpenVPN. This can be found in the Unofficial OpenElec repository which sits in the repository category of the official OpenElec repository. It can also be found in lrusak OpenElec Repo and also MetalKettle’s.

I would recommend just installing the latest OpenElec or any LibreElec which already include it.

For Windows users head over to openvpn.net

Linux users google your specific setup to know which commands to run to install.

VPN Choice

First if you have not already, you will need to sign up with a VPN provider. There are many different VPN providers. Some are better than others. The two which we would recommend are PIA (Private Internet Access), and IP Vanish. They are both competitively priced with good speeds. PIA is slightly cheaper but has less gateways. If you sign up for a year on either of these, then it works out cheaper in the long run.


Buy VPN


IPV 160×235 (set 4)

VPN Manager – Repository

You will need to start of by downloading the Zomboided repository from his  Git hub page.

Once you have this you will need to put it on a shared network drive that your device can see, or put it on a USB drive and plug that into your device.

Once this is done install in the normal way by going to System > Add-ons > Install from ZIP file. Locate where the file is and select it. The repo will now be installed.

VPN Manager – Install and Configuration

1. Move over to System and click on Settings.

VPN Manager 1

2. Select Add-ons.

VPN Manager 2

3. Then Install from Repository.

VPN Manager 3

4. Next choose the Zomboided Add-on Repository.

VPN Manager 4

5. Then Services.

VPN Manager 5

6. Here you will find the VNP Manager for OpenVPN. Click this.

VPN Manager 6

7. And then Install.

VPN Manager 7

8. Once installed choose Configure.

VPN Manager 8

9. Under the tab VPN Configuration you will see Click here to update VPN settings. Click on this and then choose your VPN Provider in the next row.

You will then need to input your username and password.

If using PIA (Private Internet Access), then you will need to use the User/Password found in the members area under PPTP/L2TP/SOCKS Username and Password.

If using IP Vanish then you can log in with the User/password that you created when setting up your account.

VPN Manager 9

10. Now move over to VPN Connections on the tabs at the top.

VPN Manager 10

11. Here you will be presented with all the gateways from your chosen VPN provider. Choose the one that suits you. The closer they are the faster the connection will be in theory

VPN Manager 11

12. Next you should get confirmation that you are now connected with a new I.P address. Click on OK, and that should be all for a straight forward connection.

VPN Manager 12

The next time you boot up your device, it should remember the settings you have chosen and auto connect. You will not need to repeat any of the processes above.

You will find VPN Manager for OpenVPN a lot more reliable than VPN for OpenElec by MetalKettle. It is more in depth and connects at start up with no trouble at all. If you have any questions the leave a comment below.

Upgrading to Raspberry Pi 3 Kodi Problems http://www.kodipiguide.com/guides/upgrading-raspberry-pi-3-kodi-problems/ http://www.kodipiguide.com/guides/upgrading-raspberry-pi-3-kodi-problems/#comments Sun, 17 Apr 2016 22:52:01 +0000 http://www.kodipiguide.com/?p=515 This article is to cover some of the Raspberry Pi 3 Kodi problems you may encounter when upgrading.

This article is to cover some of the Raspberry Pi 3 Kodi problems you may encounter when upgrading. But before that a little about what has changed.

The Raspberry Pi 3 is a great bit of tech, and a worthy upgrade from the Raspberry Pi 2 and it’s predecessors. The most noiticable changes is the introduction of built in wireless LAN and Bluetooth capabilities.

The processor has had a nice upgrade as well. It is still quad-core but has had a speed boost from 900MHz to 1.2GHz. Although this is only a 300MHz increase, the speed is handled better due to it’s architecture upgrade from a 32 bit Cortex A7 chip to a Cortex A53 64 bit chip. The results is a very good speed increase.

The RAM is the same size as the Raspberry Pi 2 at 1GB, both DDR2. The good news is the Raspberry Pi 3’s RAM is running a lot faster at 900MHz as apposed to the 450MHz of the Pi 2.

The GPU chipset is the same VideoCore IV on both Pi’s. What you get with the Raspberry Pi 3 is a clock speed of 400MHz compared to the 250MHz of the Pi 2.

All in all a tremendous hardware upgrade whilst keeping the same very low price.

Does the Raspberry Pi 2 Case fit the Raspberry Pi 3?

The Raspberry Pi 2 and the Raspberry Pi 3 are both model B.’s. Even with the additions of the new chips and upgrades, the Raspberry Pi Foundation has managed to keep the same form factor. This is great news because all your Raspberry Pi 2 cases will fit your Raspberry Pi 3.

So when you order your new Raspberry Pi 3 you want need to order a new case. Unless you want to have one for both of course.

Known Raspberry Pi 3 Kodi Problems – Power Supply

With the new WiFi and Bluetooth technologies being added to the chipboard. The Raspberry Pi 3 does use a little more power. The recommended power supply is 2.5A – +5.1V. What you may find is that the power supply you were using on your old Raspberry Pi still powers on the Pi, but you will get a square rainbow box in the top right of the screen. The multi coloured square may flash on and off. This indicates that more Amps are needed.

Raspberry Pi 3 Kodi Problems - Coloured Square

They say that for general use, without using all the USB ports there should be little difference in the Amps, and 2.1A plugs should work. In reality I found that the iPad plug that I was using on the Raspberry Pi 2 with no issues, did not have enough power for the Raspberry Pi 3. It still booted, but straight away the multi coloured square was visible in the top right of the screen.

When the Rainbow square appears you may get some random unwanted results. These include crashes, sound issues and graphical glitches among other things.

Several plugs were tested with the same coloured square appearing. You may find that yours works perfectly.

The power supply that did, and always will work is the Official Raspberry Pi 3 Universal Power Supply.

The official plug is surprisingly cheaper than most other quality power supplies. You will also get the peace of mind that it is the right one for the job, and no risk of damage being done.

Known Raspberry Pi 3 Kodi Problems – Sound with bad or no Picture

Generally this will not happen. There is no problems as such with stuttering or bad video playback on the Raspberry Pi 3 as long as your network is up to scratch and the source speed is good.

What some people forget is that with a Raspberry Pi you need to buy a MPEG-2 Codec Licence Key to play some videos. When you purchase a MPEG-2 Licence Key it is for only one device. So the ones you may have brought for your older Pi’s will not work.

People forget all about the MPEG-2 Codec, and have issues with no picture or stuttering/slow motion visuals. A lot of Videos work fine without the MPEG-2 Codec. But if you have some MPEG-2 videos in your collection, or use PVR addons such as TVheadend, then you will need to purchase a new licence.

Once you have your Licence key you will need to add it to your Config.txt file which you may need to create if it is not there already. You will then find that any problems with video playback on the Raspberry Pi will have been resolved.

My SD Card Is Not Clicking In on the Raspberry Pi 3

You will be glad to know that your memory card slot is not broken. On the older Raspberry Pi’s, the memory card slot was fitted with a spring mechanism which you could feel activate and de-activate as you push the micro SD card in and out. With the Raspberry Pi 3 this has been left out for reasons unknown to me. Maybe some broke and removing it eliminates the risk of it breaking.

The SD card still stays in place on the Raspberry Pi 3, so the spring is not really needed.

Can I Use the Same SD Card Image of OpenElec That I was Using on my Raspberry Pi 2?

You can take your micro SD card straight out of your Pi 2 and put it in the Raspberry Pi 3 with an OpenElec install on it. It should work perfectly. The important thing is to ensure that you update to the latest version of OpenElec or else the WiFi and Bluetooth drivers will be missing, so you won’t be able to use the new features.

If you discover any other Raspberry Pi 3 Kodi problems when switching from an older Raspberry Pi, please feel free to leave a comment and we will help you out if needed.

Real Debrid has become real popular recently, but a lot of people still ask what is Real Debrid and how do I use Real Debrid? Searching the internet can still leave you wondering what Real Debrid is and how you can benefit from it.

The spike in interest has a lot to do with people who use Real Debrid with Kodi (Xbmc).

After reading this article you should be up and running, and also understand the additional benefits on offer and how to use them.

What are the benefits when you use Real Debrid with Kodi?

When you want to use kodi to stream a TV programme or a movie using the numerous addons, you will have noticed that on some addons the list of available streams/sources are not always of the best quality. Some buffering frequently, or not starting at all. What Real Debrid does is supercharge the speed of some of those streams, meaning that they will start quicker and have no buffering at all once playing.

When a source is being supplied by Real Debrid, they will either show up in a different colour, have RD or REA by them or actually say Real Debrid next to them. It is not guaranteed that every film on every addon will have a RD link, but many do.

In order to take full advantage of Real Debrid. You are advised to use a VPN. In doing so you will get many many extra Real Debrid links when using certain addons like Genisis, Velocity and Salts etc, which use a variety of sources , some of which are normally blocked by your I.P provider. This includes Primewire, Icefilms, 123Movies, AFDAH, Zmovies and lots of others, many of which are supported by Real Debrid. It is not essential to have the VPN. It will still work without one, but you will get all the available sources and the full potential of Real Debrid.

Real Debrid Banner

 

Create a Real Debrid Account

The good news is, you can try out Real Debrid for free. They have what they call happy hours between 6am and 12pm (they say 12am on their site in error).

Creating an account is free and easy. Head over to the Real Debrid website here, or by clicking the banner above. Click on sign up at the top right. All you will be asked for is your language, a user name and a password. You will then be sent a confirmation email which you will need a link in it which you need to click.

If you want to go straight for a premium account without trying the happy hours, you will find this in the menu user premium. The prices are very reasonable. For ¢3 (about £2.30 or $3.38) you can purchase 15 days. The more cost effective way is to buy a larger time span, with the top end being 180 days for ¢16 (about £14 or $18). That works out at just ¢2.66 (about £2.33 a month or $3), for a whole month.

There are addition uses for Real Debrid other than using it with Kodi. To learn about these please see after the setup guide below.

 

Setting up Real Debrid in Kodi – Xbmc

Setting up Real Debrid is really easy. Most addons will work by using the simple steps below. A few kodi addons requires setting up within the individual addon before they will use Real Debrid, which will be explained after.

1: Start by selecting Settings under System on the main menu

Use Real Debrid Step 1

2: Then move down to Add-ons

Use Real Debrid Step 2

3: On the next screen choose System at the bottom

Use Real Debrid Step 3

4: Then Dependencies

Use Real Debrid Step 4

5: Near the bottom of the next menu select URLResolver

Use Real Debrid Step 5

6: Then Configure

Use Real Debrid Step 6

7: On the top menu move over to the tab that says Universal ResolversScroll down to Real-Debrid. All you need to do here is set priority to 90 and turn Enabled and I have a Real Debrid Account on.

Use Real Debrid Step 7

When you click on a link that is powered by Real Debrid within an addon for the first time, you will be presented with a popup with a code on it asking you to go to https://real-debrid.com/device.

You need to open this link in a browser and enter the code given, then click on allow. You will only be asked to do this once per device.

Real Debrid Authorization

That is all you need to do for the main part of the Kodi setup, so you can use Real Debrid.

 

Setting up Real Debrid in Genesis – Xbmc

A few addons require a different setup in order to use Real Debrid. Most are happy with just the settings above.

For the example below you are shown how to add Real Debrid to Genisis. If an addon requires you to setup Real Debrid separately, the process will be very similar.

From the main menu select Settings > Add-ons > My Add-ons > Video Add-ons > Genesis.

Real Debrid Genisis Step 5

You then need to select Configure and you will be presented with the screen below. Move over to Accounts, and scroll down until you see RealDebrid.

Here you will need to add the user name and password you used when signing up for Real Debrid.

Real Debrid Genisis Step 6

You will now be able to use Real Debrid when choosing a stream within Genesis.

 

Can I Use Real Debrid with more than one device?

You will need to be careful when using your Real Debrid account. You can get banned if you break their rules after a few warnings.

As long as you follow the points below you will be fine.

  • Use as many devices as you like as long as it is behind the same router.
  • You can use your account at a different locations outside your home, just make sure that if you are doing this you only use one device at a time

Can you use a VPN with Real Debrid?

As mentioned earlier, using a VPN along side Real Debrid will give you the most sources possible.

When you use a VPN your I.P address will change. You do not have to worry about Real Debrid thinking that you are sharing your account and resulting in a ban if you use the right ones. They have white listed numerous VPN providers I.P addresses. PIA is on the list for certain. If you use your VPN and get a warning about delicate use, you can contact their support and ask them to white list your VPN’s I.P address’s.

To see the other benefits of having a VPN and for a guide on how to add them, head over to Kodi VPN setup.

 

How to use Real Debrid’s Unrestricted Downloads

Having a Real Debrid accounts comes with other benefits in the form of Unrestricted Downloads. What this means is that you will be able to download files at the top of your download speed.

If you stumble across any downloads from any of the hosters listed below. Instead of waiting for timers or downloading at reduced speeds. You are able to right click copy a link and paste it into the download box on the download part in the menu on the Real Debrid website.

Click on Unrestrict my links and you will be presented with a button to click to download from their servers at high speed.

For those of you using a VPN with MetalKettle’s addon PIA for OpenElec, you would have noticed that it has stopped working since the upgrade to OpenElec 6.0. Fear not there is now a new improved addon called VPN for OpenElec in MetalKettle’s Repository. This guide will show you how to setup VPN for OpenElec using PIA.

Before Setup VPN for OpenElec

Please note: For an alternative Add-on to use please head over to the VPN Manager page. Although you can still carry on with the method. It will still work.

Before you setup VPN for OpenElec, ensure you have the latest version of OpenElec installed.  This can be done through the menu of a current version, or downloading the files from the OpenElec website, and flashing a fresh install to your SD card. As of writing, the latest version is 6.0. If you are unsure how to do this, please see this previous post for setting up kodi.

The VPN for OpenElec Addon can be found within Superrepo, but it is better to install the Metalkettle repository. The Metalkettle repo can be added the same way as Superrepo. The file source you need to add is http://kodi.metalkettle.co instead of http://srp.nu. 

You will also need to add the OpenVPN addon, which can be found in the Unofficial OpenElec repo.  By default the unofficial OpenElec repo is not installed. It can be found within the Openelec official repository named unofficial repo.

Setup VPN for OpenElec Step 11

 

In order to proceed further, you will need a PIA account.  If you have not got one already head over to the Private Internet Access website from this link to sign up for an account. The yearly subscription is the best value at only $3.33 an month. More information can be found on my here.

Once you have your login details go to www.privateinternetaccess.com and click on Client Login. (Changed from picture)

PIA Client Support

The details you need for the addon in Kodi is not the one you log into the client login with. Once logged in you should be on the client control panel. Scroll down and you will see a section titled PPTP/L2TP/SOCKS Username and Password (Optional).

Here you will find the required User and Password to setup VPN for OpenElec.

 

12. Select continue from the popup

Setup VPN for OpenElec Step 12

18. You should now have a screen telling you that you are connected. Select VPN Status to check that it has worked

Setup VPN for OpenElec Step 18

 

19. Where it says Your IP Address it should be different to your I.P address and have the selected country next to it

Setup VPN for OpenElec Step 19

 

Setup VPN for OpenElec – Known Issues and tips

  • If you find that you I.P address is not changing then try a reboot.
  • Some users have reported that in order to get the addon working they had to do a clean install of OpenElec/Kodi. This is sure to fix any issues but is not normally needed.
  • You can get the VPN for OpenElec addon to automatically connect at start up. How you do this is to push the options button when on the gateway list and then select the option.

Setting up Kodi (Xbmc) on the Raspberry Pi can take some time and effort. If you have not used Kodi much before, it can seem quite daunting at first. What we have done is to create a disc image for you that you can download and mount to your SD card, pop it in your Pi and your ready to go!

This free configured Kodi download is built with OpenElec (Pi 2 version), arguably the best Kodi experience on the Raspberry Pi.

It includes a compilation of all the best streaming addons for watching Movies, TV shows and Live TV. Also all the best repositories have been installed, so adding new addons is simple.

The advancedsettings.xml file has been modified for optimum performance.

We have done all the hard work for you!

Configured Kodi Download – What you will need

  • Minimum of 2GB micro SD card. A larger card is advisable but not essential. This configured Kodi download has been programmed to determine the remaining space of your card and use it as storage.
  • Win32 Disk Imager (Windows) or RPI SD Card Builder (Mac). Used for writing the image to your SD card. If you are unsure how to do this, then follow Setting Up Kodi on the Raspberry Pi. Instead of using the OpenELEC download, use the configured Kodi download. Win 32 Disk Imager can be found on the SourceForge website.
  • A Raspberry Pi 2

Below is a list of all the pre-installed Addons, Repositories, Skins and Programs included in the configured Kodi download.

Streaming Movie and TV Show Addons

These are a collection of the best Addons used to access streams of literally thousands of the best films and TV shows.

Some require a virtual private network (VPN), to be able to work correctly because of certain internet providers restrictions.  Don’t worry if you do not have one.  A huge amount of content can still be accessed without one using the other Addons. Another benefit of using a VPN that people like, is that it keeps all your activity private. See the Raspberry Pi VPN setup post for full instructions on how to enable the remaining plugins content.

Movies and TV Shows

  • Genesis
  • Zeus
  • PlayBox HD
  • Phoenix
  • Cartoon HD Extra (not just cartoons but films too)
  • ICE films (needs a VPN)
  • OneChannel (needs a VPN)
  • ProjectTV (need a VPN)

TV Catch up

  • BBC iplayer
  • ITV player (with no adverts)

Live TV

  • FilmOn (Live UK TV + more)
  • Simple IPTV client TV channels  (SKY and sports channels). A channel list has been added, but you may need to find a more recent one for more working channels.

Added Repositories

These are giant repositories that include an expansive collection of the individual repositories. This means that they have literally thousands of addons so you can be sure you will find what you need.

  • SuperRepo
  • Xfinity – Xunity
  • Zeus

Music

  • MP3 Streams (Full Albums)
  • Radio Tunes (Internet Radio)
  • Vevo (Music Videos)

Skins

  • Amber Skin.  A Beautiful skin which enhances your experience. Please note, most tutorials and guides are using the default skin called Confluence. Some menu items are in a different place, but it is not difficult to get used to.  If you are having problems with any of the tutorials then it is easy to switch between the 2 skins in Settings-Appearance.

 

Amber Skin Videos

Also Included in the Configured Kodi Download

  • PIA for OpenELEC. An Easy set-up wizard for using a VPN from PIA (privateinternetaccess) under programs. Visit Raspberry Pi VPN Setup for a easy to follow tutorial to set this up.
  • NaviX Programme
  • Met Office Weather. Found under weather. You just need to change the City to match yours

Various Addons have been added to the Home Shelf under settings to allow you easy access from the home menu screen under Addons. Feel free to change these for others. You can also add Addons to favourites to make them show up in the same way under favourites in the menu.

If you have any requests for my next release please let me know.

Kodi / XBMC is a great piece of software. Its main purpose is entertainment. Playback of Music, live TV and on demand TV shows and Movies are its greatest features. This can be your own digital collection, or streamed straight from the internet. Kodi is available for many devices such as Raspberry Pi’s, PC’s and Andriod box’s. Even devices that are not originally thought of for being used for Kodi, there are ways of installing the software. Examples of this is the Amazon Fire Stick, Amazon Fire Box and Apple TV 2.

Desktop and laptops are probably the easiest to set up and configure, but most people do not have these connected to their main TV. This is where the Raspberry Pi comes in. Not only is it cheap to buy, cheap to run and small. It is also powerful enough for a smooth enjoyable experience. Also the benefit of owning a Raspberry Pi is that just by switching the micro SD card, it can be used for many other things such as surveillance, robotics and retro game emulation.

Some people use Andriod boxes to run Kodi / XBMC. These are good and you can have numerous applications on it at the same time, which also streams content and play games etc. Andriod boxes are normally more expensive and not as versatile as the Raspberry Pi. Some can be difficult to update and become buggy. At the end of the day it all comes down to preference. As a standalone Kodi player I personally would go for the Raspberry Pi 2. It has operating systems made especially for the purpose of running Kodi and therefore all available resources are used for it.

Kodi (XBMC) has lots of ways to watch and listen to many different forms of entertainment. If you are interested in watching free live TV from all over the world, then you are in luck. It is simple to setup live TV on Kodi. IPTV is becoming popular very fast. Many smart TV’s now have apps that can do the same, but a lot are not as versatile, and you may have to pay to use them.

Kodi has a client built straight into it called PVR IPTV Simple Client that allows you to setup live TV on Kodi easily. By adding a URL link to a M3U file or pointing it to a locally stored file you can have access in no time.

Many of the channels will be in HD, and you can even get program guides for some.

Links can become inactive on some of the major channels. With a good M3U file list, the links are updated frequently to prevent this from happening to often.

Setup live TV on Kodi – 9 easy steps

1. First of all we need to enable the Live TV feature. Select System and then Settings

Setup live TV on Kodi Step 1

 

 

2. Select Live TV from the menu

Setup live TV on Kodi Step 2

 

3. Highlight the Enable at the top

Setup live TV on Kodi Step 2

 

4. A message will pop up asking you to enable a PVR addon. Select OK

Setup live TV on Kodi Step 4

 

5. This should take you straight to the relevant addon screen for all the PVR clients. Choose the PVR IPTV Simple Client

Setup live TV on Kodi Step 5

 

6. Select Enable and the Configure

Setup live TV on Kodi Step 6

 

7. Under General Location should be on Internet address. Select M3U Playlist URL

Setup live TV on Kodi Step 7

 

8. This is where you enter the URL location for the channel lists. These can be found by searching on the internet. Some are better that others. I will supply you with some to get you started below under Setup Live TV on Kodi – M3U lists. Enter the address in full including the http:// and select done

Note: Do not use the url’s in the screenshots. They will not work.

Setup live TV on Kodi Step 8

 

9. Ensure Cache m3u at local storage is unchecked and select OK

Setup live TV on Kodi Step 9

 

10. That is all there is to it to setup live TV on Kodi. By restarting Kodi (or disabling and re-enabling the addon), you should see Live TV appear on the main menu. If the m3u list you are using is broken then you will not see TV on the menu.

TV on menu

 

With some skins the TV may not show on the menu without adjusting the skins settings. This tutorial uses the default skin Confluence. A good skin to use, and one of my personal favourites is the Amber skin (see feature image at the top for an example). You will find Amber more visually pleasing, but some menu items are in different places and takes a little while to get use to.

Setup Live TV on Kodi – M3U lists

These are URL links to some m3u channel lists that I have sourced from various websites.

Some are updated more frequently than others, in which case more channels will work.

Add these in Step 9 (please note these may become outdated, see comments for newer IPTV channel lists.)

Sometimes you will find lists that are ZIP files. These need to be uncompressd put on a local drive that your device can see and pointed to its location in steps 8-9. With a PC this is not a problem, but with other devices such as the Raspberry Pi, you will need to connect to it via your laptop or desktop, and upload the file to the device, or setup a shared drive that it can see. Another simpler alternative is to put the file onto a USB drive and plug that into the Pi, and copy it to a folder that way.

Setup Live TV on Kodi – Paid IPTV Subscriptions

Free M3u list are great because they are free, but they can be unreliable sometimes, and will need changing if channel links become broken. Another alternative to setup live TV on Kodi is paid IPTV subscriptions. These normally come in the form of a M3u list file which you can point to within IPTV Simple. A great source of paid M3u subscriptions is Ebay, have a look at these 

IPTV subscriptions come in many forms. 1 month, 3 month, 6 month, 1 year etc. Some sellers also offer a free test line to show you the quality of their streams. The sellers on Ebay generally include instructions on how to add the m3u list. Ensure that in the description they mention Xbmc or Kodi and it should work fine. Many will come with a full EPG included.

 are very reasonably priced considering the amount of channels you will receive. In many cases this will be many channels you would normally have to pay a lot more for, with a years subscription costing what just one month would normally cost for similar packages.

Bearing this in mind, and the piece of mind that the channels are reliable, it is a defiantly worth considering.

You will probably need to point IPTV Simple to where you have placed the file that you download after purchase. This is done at step 7 above. Instead of choosing remote path, you will need to choose local, then browse to the folder you have placed the file in.

If you are using a laptop or desktop then placing the file in a suitable place is easy because it can be anywhere on your network. If you are using devices such as Wetek boxes, Raspberry Pi’s or Andriod boxes, then you will need to place the file in a location accessible by Kodi. There are lots of ways you can do this such as a Samba share, ftp, or using programs like Putty and FileZilla from your Windows or OSX devise. Another option would be to pop the file onto a usb pen drive and put in one of the USB slots on your kodi device. You can then copy the file over to Kodi using File Manager within Kodi.


Setup live TV on Kodi – EPG – Electronic Program Guide

Some M3U lists come with EPG’s. To add them it is similar to the way you would add a new channel list.

In the configure screen as in Step 7 above, choose EPG settings and do the same as you did for the channel set up but put the URL for the EPG into the XMLTV URL. (Please note that the example in the screenshot may not work, you will need to search for them on the internet)

Again ensure the Cache at local storage is unchecked.

Setup live TV on Kodi EPG

 

Some EPG’s are set in a different time zone.  If this happens, use the EPG Time Shift setting to move the hours accordingly.

You should be able to access working links without a VPN. However if you want to be completely hidden and have full access to all Addon content then you should consider PIA. Please head over to Kodi VPN Setup – Full Content Access for all the details.

If you have any questions please ask.

There are a number of ways of controlling Kodi (XBMC). In fact you are spoilt for choice  You are likely to already have the hardware needed for some of the methods that can be used. Here are the top 7 ways.

Controlling Kodi with a TV remote

Most modern TV remotes will work straight away through a technology called CEC, Consumer Electronics Control. It works by sending commands through your HDMI cable to the connected device. Different manufacturers have different names for CEC such as: LG – SimpLink, Sony – Bravia Link/Sync, Toshiba – Regza Link and Samsung – Anynet+ to name a few.

If you TV does support CEC, and it is not working. Be sure to check that you have the CEC adaptor enabled under System > Settings > System > Input Devices > Peripherals.

You will find that the directional buttons work along with select, back, exit along with Stop, play and fast forward etc. Most actions can be made with just these buttons, with text input available via the onscreen keyboard.

One of the best combinations is to use the TV remote along with a 2.4GHz keyboard for the longer text input when needed.

Controlling Kodi with a Game Pad

Game pads can be used for Controlling Kodi. On Windows based systems for example, the Xbox controller should work straight away.  This is because Windows has the supported drivers. You will find that most game pads work. Unfortunately this is not the case when using them on the Raspberry Pi because of the lack of supported drivers.

Buttons can be changed by saving different keymap files in userdata/keymaps/

Using a wired Keyboard & Mouse

Controlling Kodi with a wired keyboard and mouse is not the ideal method for controlling Kodi with the Raspberry Pi. Especially in a living room setup, with wires traipsing across the floor. It is more suited to a Kodi setup on a desktop PC.

It is however a life saver for the initial setup of Kodi if no other method is working.

The main controls you need are the arrow keys to move around, Enter to select, Backspace to go back and Esc to go to previous menu or home screen. A full set of mapped keys can be found on the Kodi Wiki page.

Controlling Kodi with a IR Remote

This is a good option for having a stand alone remote to control Kodi on the Raspberry Pi.  They use a usb cable attached to a Infrared receiver that is plugged straight into the Pi (or any other device). You can then control Kodi with the remote control straight away if you are using OpenElec and most other operating systems.

It works by turning the button pushes on the remote into keyboard and mouse clicks.

They can be found very cheaply on both Ebay and Amazon.

Be sure to check that “Remote control sends keyboard presses” is enabled under System > Settings > Input Devices if you run into any problems.

The DIGIFLEX USB PC Computer Remote Control Media Center Controller is a good example of a reliable cheap IR remote.

Digiflex USB IR Remote

Using a Bluetooth or Radio frequency remote or keyboard

RF remotes are a very popular choice. Many come as a keyboard and mouse (track pad) in one. Normally they are standard PNP, which means no drivers are needed so will work out the box.

They work similar to the IR remotes by sending keystrokes and clicks.

One of my favorite is the Rii i8 Multifunction 2.4GHz RF Portable Mini Wireless Keyboard with Touchpad Mouse. They are a nice size and have everthing you need. There are some fake ones being sold for ceaper prices, but even those should still work well.

If you purchase one and don’t like the button configurations, then you can always change your keymaps. This shouldn’t be an issue with a keyboard based remote, but you may wish to change them on the standard remote variants.

Rii i8 Wireless Keyboard-Mouse

Controlling Kodi with your Smart Phone or Tablet

There are many apps out there that can be used as a Kodi remote. They can be a little harder to setup than the other methods mentioned. But once setup work very well. Just type in Kodi remote or Xbmc remote into your respective app store to find them. Most are free, but you can pay a bit for some more premium features.

To be able to use them you will have to first turn on a few setting under settings > services.

  1. The first is “Allow programs on other systems to control Kodi“, under “Remote control
  2. The second is “Allow control of Kodi via HTTP“, under “Webserver“. Take a note of the port number, Username and Password. You will probably need them when setting up the app on your smart device.
  3. And finally “Announce these services to other systems via Zeroconf“, under “Zeroconf“. This is most likely to already be enabled. It helps other devices to recognize Kodi on your network. This does not always work in which case you will need to input the IP address of you Raspberry Pi or other device.

Using a Web Browser

A web browser can be used on any device from you desktop to your smartphone to control Kodi.

You will first need to do two changes to the settings.

  1. Turn on “Allow control of Kodi via HTTP“, under “Webserver” in settings > services.
  2. Under settings > services > webserver, set which interface you would like to use as default. You should find one from Team XBMCalready there.

Once done you can enter the IP address i.e http://192.168.1.x into your address bar and you will be presented with a web interface remote.  You can also use hostname followed by port number. By default if left blank it will assume that you are using port 80.

 

What method do you use for controlling Kodi on the Raspberry Pi ?(or any other device). It would be good to hear which your favorite is.

Setting up a VPN on the Raspberry Pi can be difficult. It normally involves using programs such as Putty, FileZilla and thermal to send commands, edit and send files.PIA for OpenElec is a great Addon which makes it very easy to setup a Raspberry Pi VPN.

As the name suggests, it uses PIA (Private Internet Access), and works on OpenElec. The Addon can be found within Superrepo, but the true home is in the Metalkettle repository. The Metalkettle repo can be added the same way as Superrepo. The file source you need to add is http://kodi.metalkettle.co instead of http://srp.nu. It can also be added the traditional way by using a ZIP file.

This method is no longer supported on OpenElec 6.0. Head over to the Setup VPN for OpenElec Addon page for the latest

For the best latest Add-on to use please head over to the VPN Manager page

Easy Raspberry Pi VPN setup – Step by Step

In order to use PIA for OpenElec you will first need to first sign up to PIA. For a description of the benefits head over to my PIA page.

1. Once you have your log in details head over to www.privateinternetaccess.com and click on Client Support

PIA Client Support

 

2. Scroll down to “Go to CLIENT CONTROL PANEL“, click it and enter your username and password that was emailed to you and sign in

PIA Client Sign-in

 

 

3. Under “PPTP/L2TP/SOCKS Username and Password”. There is a second User and Password. These are the ones that you will need to put into PIA for OpenElec. If there are not any, or you wish to change them, click on Regenerate Username and Password

PIA Usename & Password

 

4. Assuming you have added the Addon PIA for OpenElec, in Kodi go to programs and choose the Addon

Raspberry Pi VPN 1

 

5. Select Setup Private Internet Access

Raspberry Pi VPN 2

 

 

6. From the pop up select Continue

Raspberry Pi VPN 3

 

7. Enter the username from Step 3 and select Done

Raspberry Pi VPN 4

 

8. Another screen will appear where you input the password from step 3. Select Done

Raspberry Pi VPN 5

 

9. You will then get a message to confirm that it is all setup

Raspberry Pi VPN 6

 

10. Select OK, then choose OpenElec Settings. This can be found in the same menu but is also under programs. Move down to Connections and the available locations will populate. This will take several seconds. From here you can select the country you wish to tunnel the VPN through. The closer to you the place is the faster your connection should be

Raspberry Pi VPN 7

 

11. After choosing one. Select Connect

Raspberry Pi VPN 8

 

12. It will then connect and give you a new I.P address.

Raspberry Pi VPN 9

That’s all there is to it to settup your Raspberry Pi VPN. You will now have full access to every Addon. Taking away any Geo and IP block restrictions whilst at the same time being completely hidden. If you turn off your Raspberry Pi you will need to repeat steps 10 – 12 again. Enjoy.

Buy VPN

Note: The PIA for OpenElec addon is currently not working with the latest version of Kodi Isengard. If you wish to continue using it, please stay on a earlier version such as Frodo or Gotham. There are other ways to get PIA to work in Kodi, but they are more complicated. I will inform you when the addon has been updated, or a fix is released.

Update 21/11/2015: A new version of PIA for OpenElec is now available called VPN for OpenElec and replaces the old one in MettleKettle’s repo. It works with the latest OpenElec 6 which uses Kodi 15.2 Isengard. If you have followed this guide, update OpenElec after and the addon should then also update. As well as PIA VPN there are also 2 others that can now be used. A full guide will follow soon, stay tuned.

Last Update: An updated page can be found by following the link at the top of the page.
