February 10, 2011 // 8:45 am - Today Spanish PlayStation 3 Developer XESC has released a homebrew application he calls PS3 Channels Creator v1.0.

Download: PS3 Channels Creator v1.0

To quote from Elotrolado, roughly translated: Hello! I present a program that I've developed to create channel lists PS3 to our liking.

The program already has a list of channels to add, but otherwise there is an option to put our channels or web pages you want!

The only creates our file xil.xml to put directly into our PS3 (/dev_hdd0/tmp/explore/xil/tv/c/63431223453538546/xil.xml). Suitable for all the CFW or dongles as you only need an FTP or file manager.

The icons and the backgrounds are the same as the pack of colchonerox! I hope you find it useful!

PS: If you have any problems or want to add channels to the next version reply in the thread, thanks!

most of the tv sites restrict access by ip, so having them in is kinda of useless imo.

how about just reinstalling PlayTV. (If you have playtv) that should put back the TV XMB.

I bring you the second version of PS3 Channels Creator 2.0 homebrew application today.

PCC is a windows program used to create lists of channels for our PS3. These channels are like shortcuts to Web sites, you do not need to be web video.

Download: PS3 Channels Creator 2.0


  • Now you can choose the icons you want (even add icons added)
  • Works in all regions
  • You can choose the name of the folder containing the xil.xml (Not all consoles have the same name)
  • Different languages (English, Spanish and Catalonian)
  • You can choose the order of channels
  • All times are displayed in the channel list

As the big news about the first version is that you can change the icons of presentation. The icons have to take some measures and be 320x176 PNG. You can also use icons from other icons packs. Icons do not need to be hosted on external servers are stored on your PS3.

The first menu you can choose the name of the folder that contains the XIL.XML. To find out you only have to look (for ftp or file manager) the name of the folder that is located in "/ dev_hdd0/tmp/explore/xil/tv/ctmp /". With this program you ride perfect for all folders that you just have to upload the folder xil.

Sorry for my bad english!!
