Gosh, that was quick!
I have asked the user to test it.
I know nothing of IPTV, but decided to give this a try anyway.
I installed the add-on from our repos, then updated it using qarepo. No installation issues.
Ran Kodi, and was asked if I wanted to activate the addon. I agreed, and was taken to a configuration page that looked like it might be functioning as designed.
Went online and searched for guidance, which was plentiful. Too plentiful. Tried some instructions from a "basic" site, only to find partway through that they were for a different platform. All very much for the novice, but The feel was that my problems were strictly due to human error, not due to any regressions.
This has been waiting more than long enough. Going to send this on its way with a clean install. Validating. Advisory in Comment 1.
An update for this issue has been pushed to the Mageia Updates repository.
