PleXBMC and live channels always an error.

I am wondering if anyone else has had this problem and if you managed to solve it, I have been using PleXBMC on Kodi 16, 16.1 and now 17.1 and i have never got channels too work [Always has the check log error].

If i use Plex.tv on my windows 8.1 laptop the channels work no problem so i know it is not an issue with my server or how i have the server setup.

My Movies and TV shows work perfectly fine.

On another note if i try to play the same channels on the FireTV app from Amazon store [So is the latest version] again Movies/TV shows are 100% but channels instantly have the "Playback has stopped because the connection to the Plex Media Server has been lost" error

So in short Live TV channels even BBC iPlayer etc will not work on PlexBMC or Plex FireTV

I can provide an error log for Kodi if needed but i thought maybe someone else had the same issue and found a fix.

Thanks in advance.
