Personal build

Does anyone have a link to a good how to on making your own build/wizard? Trying to keep my kids and friends systems updated is getting time consuming and repetitive. If I had a build I could just update that would be nice!

That's true and a good idea!
I was hoping to do a build that could be updated so as to save others preferences and just update repos, urls, add/remove addons.
On a side note, exodus is my number one favorite addon and it doesn't work with super favorites, I read somewhere how to edit a few lines of code and make it work with metalliq and super favorites, but then I would have to edit code every time there is an update.
Putting a build on a USB flash drive is a great idea, except the devices I'm trying to update are all amazon fire sticks. Easiest way for the kids would be to use my wizard and/or enter a URL and download a new zip

No epg for me in my set up. Not needed. I basically know what is on and when anyway.

Yup Exodus can no longer add links to Super Favorites since last summer,  but if I recall you can still add the entire category.  I don't fully understand what you are trying to achieve, do you want to use a 3rd party skins Aeon or Xonfluence so you can have customized tabs and categories ?  There also an add-on called Pseudo TV that you can link sources for those that like flipping channels like on a TV.

Well the EPG question was kind of separate from the build/ wizard stuff.
I have tried a couple of TVGuide type addons.
I could not get TVPortal from noobsandnerds to work with the xmltv files.
I'm trying out assassins tv guide, I like how its set up to link a channel from inside an addon to your guide.
I was just wondering what other people are using.
I want a guide that shows what is on the particular channel, then be able to click that channel and have it play from the addon or xmltv file, or m3u list.

My builds are from a Linux PC running Xubuntu.
Whenever I installed the build via 'Restore' on a Windows10 PC
a pop up warning that it's from a diffrent OS would you like to continue
just hit yes and the build will contine untill done.
So you should have no problem installing the build on a different
system/OS  click yes to continue. However the icons could be gone
and it's possibe the favorets are also but the build itself will still work.
This way you update the build on one machine and do the restore
on all the rest. Granted some will complain about missing icons, etc
just remind them it's better than a having a broken box
and it is current and up to date. Be sure to use the backup program
that comes with Kodi, the one with the floppy disk icon. 8)
