    How to change a channel to Radio type

    I know I have done this before but how do I change a TV channel to radio without editing the database? I thought it was under Details but it is not there.

    In details, for digital channels you get the option to change the service type, and there is a couple of radio types in there.

    For other channel types, they usually have to be imported as radio in the first place, like analog with 'add fm'

    Thanks I must have changed the database to make some channels radio for Kodi. Now I am trying to figure out how to add mp3 streams as IPTV. I tried all three options but nothing seems to play. Does the stream name matter?

    If you're using 'Add', you'll probably need to set the type of Internet Sourced IPTV.
