The resulting link must be such that https://www.tdtchannels.com/lists/tv.m3u8.

Click on “Install” and we accept the installation of added plugins. Once the Kodi add-on is installed, click on “Implement” and among all the sections, look for one that has the title “M3U Playlist URL” and there we write the text that we copied before. Is it https://www.tdtchannels.com/lists/tv.m3u8 and after completing the link, we click, and this is very important, on the “OK” button.

This add-on does not allow us to record TV channels and to do this we will only have to download another add-on called “IPTV Recorder” from this link. For this we go to the road “Settings”, “System” and in “Complements” we check that the option is activated “Unknown Origins” to install add-ons from third-party repositories. If not, we do.

When the add-on is installed, we need to configure it to add the path of the FFMPEG codec executable file. So we enter the “IPTV Recorder” add-on and “Implement” click on “Jobs and Rules” and in “ffmpeg-exe” we add the path to the codec executable that we previously downloaded and that is in the folder “.binffmpeg.exe”. All you have to do is click on “OK”.

The add-on asks for the hours that we want to leave the recording of the program and once finished we can find the file in “Recordings”. The extension also allows us to create recording routines so that it always starts recording at the selected time.
