Sometimes we want to try and test our subscription link to confirm its active and functioning, especially when we are having issues. 

We go directly to the diagnostics section on 

We click on check subscription

There we enter our subscription m3u link for testing. 

Once entered and we will see our subscription in detail, if green it will be active and stable. 

But if we encounter the following error, we have a tip in order to verify the link again.


The tip is to remove the extra 80, and just leave one set of 80 in order to bypass the issue, the link should then look like this.

Try again and a more accurate result should come about.

Again, remove the extra 80 and just leave one pair to test your link.
