I have a few hundred streams I would like to add to Online Videos. I have tried to add them manually and with a script to C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\OnlineVideoSites.xml. I add something like this to the end of the file
    <Site name="LiveTV" util="GenericSite" agecheck="false" enabled="true" lang="en" lastUpdated="2011-06-04T11:57:59.393Z">
      <Description>Live TV channels.</Description>
        <Category xsi:type="Group" name="GP">
            <Channel name="Test 1" thumb=""></Channel>
            <Channel name="Test 2" thumb=""></Channel>
and so on...
        <Category xsi:type="Group" name="Tennis">
            <Channel name="Test 3" thumb=""></Channel>
and so on...
But it only work with few streams, like 10, 30 or so. But when I try with 100+ it don't work anymore. Have any of you done something similar and can share any tips on how to proceed? Any limits on number of sites, categories and channels?

    in what way doesn't it work? Can you see the complete list in mediaportal, and are not able to play them all? Or is the list not completely visible?

    Also: if you dm me the onlinevideos.xml, perhaps I could take a peek at it...
