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!

notepad++ is a good shout actually it's nothing to do with the notepad windows comes with. you should give it a try, it supports multiple languages and it'll highlight syntax errors and things llike that. oh and free too..

I have been trying Altova XMLSpy, because in the back of my mind notepad didn't save out correctly, but I didn't know about the notepad++ version, I've not used it much, but thanks for the heads up.

Note to other readers, use only an editor that saves out the XML correctly, something like what Severusx mentioned "Notepad++" or you can try out something like Altova XMLSpy 30 day trial.

I'd use notepad++. It can show you broken tags and stuff when you set the language you are using (i.e. XML).

What 1nevermind said about not breaking the tags.. very importent.

Of a matter of interest what are you using to edit?

so, few codes I've found:


So, if you're from HU, es won't work for you, you must change to hu
leave everything else untouched, and don't break the tags, this is way too touchy.

Gotcha, I'll probably pop another small drive in it for testing and then go back to the main when i get it all ironed out.

I don't think so, but if you mess up and it dose not start, its only the drive thats mest up, and you may have to reformat your drive again, but there no chance of bricking because your not changing the flash/Bios settings.

It's not just 63431223453538546, thats (I think) a unique hash. In my case, it ended with 666. Anyway, just find the folder, which contains xil.xml. In it, find tag SOMETHING and change it to your country.

For example, if you're from Spain, and you see kr, it won't work for you and you have to change. The best way is to see which videos you have in your XMB, find it in XMB, and then change all the SOMETHING to, lets say, es

Then you'll see all channels.
