A quick query about the ability to upload playlist and EPG details to the z8 box.
My provider originally sent me a portal link which I inputted to test a service and after that trial was over, they sent me playlist details and an EPG list.
Reading through your forum, this would appear to be the M3U method of delivery, right?
The thing is, both of these log in details are such a long string of text that I thought, 'wouldn't it be good if you could stick this in a .txt and upload it right away?'.
So, having read around the forum, I've picked up scraps of information about putting the file into a .m3u file and into a folder called M3U.
But when I then try to load the EPG, it says there is either no M3U folder or sometimes it says the M3U folder is empty.
What clear step am I missing? For clarity, and with no previous experience of this kind of thing, here is what I am doing;
1. Copying EPG details from email to .txt document
2. Saving .txt document as EPG.m3u
3. Putting EPG.m3u into a folder called M3U
4. Putting M3U folder onto a USB stick
5. Trying to upload it to the EPG section of the Playlist page on the z8
Now, weirdly, it comes up blank on the EPG section of the Playlist page but if I was to try and enter that into the other two parts of the Playlist page, it gives me the potential option to upload it there - VOD Url or Playlist Url.
Again, very new to all this and I have tried to experiment over a number of days so this isn't a post made without doing some reading around first!
