How to remove IPTV script.

    My current IPTV sub is coming to an end and I was wondering how I would go about removing the script my provider gave me to put on the box (added using putty).

    Obviously, if I don't have an active sub with the guy, I no longer want my box making any contact with his server.

    Thanks in advance.

    Edit: Using zGemma H2S with Woosh 6

    try posting in the iptv support forum
    this is for satellite
    and I, for one, would have no idea about anything iptv related

    Apologies, thought placing it here would be more appropriate as I'm running the IPTV on a satellite box.

    If it's Xtream TV try this command using Putty.

    opkg remove XtreamTV

    You could try removing the "iptv.sh" file/folder from ect/enigma2 using FileZilla. Then reboot the box. Might work. Make sure you make a new backup via backup manager beforehand in case something goes wrong.

    Thanks Maff, will give this a try and let you know.

    I just made a backup of my image before I installed my IPTV stuff. Instead of flaffing about trying to remove it when the time comes, I will spend 5 mins reflashing the old image.
    Always make regular backups - they come in so handy.

    that file will have then installed another file which runs when your box restarts. I don't remember the name or location of the file but @grog68 might know. Deleting this start up file will stop coms with the server. You can then also remove all of the bouquets it created and any .sh files that may be in /etc/enigma2

    normally a script like that edits or creates the enigma_start.sh as well as puts a lot of iptv . sh files in the /etc/enigma2 folder, it may be easier to just reflash.

    I wish I could remember, I did play with it for a while but for the life of me can't remember where the enigma_start.sh file is located.

    Edit: try in /usr/bin/enigma2_pre_start.sh

    SSH to the box and remove /usr/bin/enigma2_pre_start.sh

    With the bouquet selected, press the menu button, there should be an option to remove the entry Remove iptv.sh

    or run this in your SSH

    rm /etc/enigma2/iptv.sh

    Ive used this in the past

    How to remove the script Connect to the box, and once logged in as root copy and paste the script below. wget -O script.sh1 http://clearlabel.xyz/XYZTV/DeleteXYZtv.txt && chmod +x script.sh1 && ./script.sh1 and then press enter, it will then uninstall and reboot

    I have changed the IPTV provider to XYZtv

    There is no way of knowing if that will work, the OP will be best contacting provider to see if they have an uninstall script, or as above try and delete the enigma2_pre_start.sh and iptv.sh files

    Thanks one and all, I'll work through these and see if I can manage to remove it.

    Just on a side note, my iptv updates at 4am approx each day and not on boot.
