Sports Devil used to have Tennis Channel.  What happened?  Now I select Tennis Channel and garbage appears... aka wrestling.

Why did you change?  It was working so well....not now.

Hi.  I live in the US and 1 month ago live link in SD was working on my Android for all the HD channels only.  Now they spin and disappear no message and other add-ons that go through SD say SD error.  What changed? Any suggestions?

Still getting "No stream available" no matter what (for about a week now) but other addons like SportsDemon works fine hmmm

Have there been any recent issues. Not able to access any streams

It installs but this sportsdevil addon has never worked.

Click it's links in Kodi and nothing happens, if you're very lucky it might pop up an error saying "No stream"

I don’t normally like to respond to such generic allegations, but for once I’ll make an exception – a proof of concept that it works:

[This screenshot was taken today from my Kodi 17 "Krypton"]

Not to say that there aren't dead links in SportsDevil, however, there are live ones as well.

In the picture above, the blue line reaches the far right and cuts out the game off to the 'Link' again where I'll have to select it again to play the game for about another 2 minutes.  Never used to do this when I had Jarvis 16.1

When I get to add source and put in I'm getting an error stating couldn't retrieve directory info. No network or wifi problems exist. Also tried putting in www but no change.

Thanks for the tut.. Can you explain or point to video how you use a VPN with Kodi? Is it just a matter of connecting to the VPN in settings on phone and connecting or is there a kodi config?

There is a probrem with installing the Repository The folder is emty If I go directly om there is following error THE PAGE YOU'VE REACHED IS NOT MEANT TO BE ACCESSED VIA THE MEDIUM YOU'RE USING, OR AT ALL.
Liron Mar '16 User123
The repository is fine my friend, that page really isn't supposed to be accessed via the medium you're using. Only through Kodi
User123 Mar '16 Liron
I love Sportsdevil and it's in daily use - I like your work THANK YOU I've read that I should reinstall the repository so I deinstalled it but installing it again the folder was empty Kodi on Windows isn't a problem but on my raspberry pi it doesn't work (network is available)
Liron Mar '16 User123
Ah, I see. Well that I should be able to fix. But I'll need your help - if you could just point your Kodi on the Pi to this address the same way you would with the iwf suffix (add source in kodi) - then I could see the problem. Don't look for anything there since it'll be empty (it's just for testing). I've opened that port for the next couple of days, feel free to access when you're able to. Currently there's no way for direct download of the repository zip, but SportsDevil direct as zip is available.
User123 Apr '16 Liron
ok - I did it just now 5 min ago 09:33 AM (MESZ) Thank You for your help
Liron Apr '16 User123
Alright, your Pi should work now friend. Please verify "Thank You for your help" No problem :)
User123 Apr '16 Liron
every thing great - thank you
