Would be awesome if someone could help out the non-techies by creating a docker for xteve or the new telly.  I'll help anyway I can to test it...

I posted instructions for telly1.1 version (I think its 1.1) a few posts above which currently works fine, version 1.5 is still in alpha and is not functioning as it should right now. Its a very simple template and you drop a config file in the mapped folder. Use the above links to get a base config file and edit to your needs. There is also a container for xTeve which works but I dont think its on the appstore and you need to create your own template.

wrt this section in the config file:

XMLTV-Channels = true     # if true, any channel numbers specified in your M3U file will be used.

Does anyone know what format the channel numbers need to be in the config file?

Is it "#EXTINF:-1 tvg-chno="268" tvg-ID=" etc.?

Set CA to show DockerHub in searches, install from there. 

Hi Rick, I have multiple IPTV entries but none start... also no options to put in M3U file port etc as per the original setup?

Map /etc/telly to appdata/telly/ and put your m3u there. Reference the m3u in telly.congig.toml as

M3U = "/etc/telly/xxxxx.m3u"

If I was starting now I'd use the xTeve docker though.

Thanks Rick, I also found Xteve but as per the post under that docker page.

I can't pass the channels into plex because I cant map them to the correct channel name... do you know what I need to do here?

You need to map them in Plex settings in manage channels. So you need an epg source too. You can specify the epg XML file in the telly config, and tell Plex to use the telly epg at http://<telly IP>/epg.xml

is plex still limited by the number of channels it can have from an iptv? I had an issue with this in the past as my iptv provider had 2000+ channels

I also cannot find this application. Any assistance?

Did you set CA to look in DockerHub?

I did, there are quite a few docker apps, so I have been installing some trying to find the correct one.

any of the dockers I install I cannot see, connect, or configure them accordingly

Having said that, my advice is to do what I did, dump telly and the proxy and move to xTeVe. Far smoother and more reliable, using the built-in buffer in xTeVe there's no need for a proxy.

Hmm I see. Forgive me my 'skills' in the dept are not the greatest. I have been reading some guides and wiki's to see if I can get it figured out. I will do my best based on your screen above to start (using this container). See if I can get to at least where I can configure it. I get the container installed but I can't seem to connect to [IP][PORT] to start the configuration.

I will do my best, I appreciate the assistance.
