What you put in the m3u other that the URL, serves no purpose
whatsoever other than being used as the channel name during the first
So you're not setting put which channel you need to use.

myth doesn't allow to switch video stream in a mpeg-ts file, it takes
the first one which may not be usable.
Try upgrading to master instead, there's a new method for determining
which video stream is best... You'll still be able to only watch one
and can't switch to the others.

Having said that, I had never heard of an iptv channels streaming a TS
with multipliple video stream
