Mike - the INSTALL file says:
Add a stream to your configuration
Harvester: 'apple'

Could you please advise where to enter the Harvester line. In the
mythstream docco it talks about specifying handlers but doesn't say
how you do that. My streams.res entries look like this and there's
nothing that says anything about handlers:

ABC Dig Radio (WM)
ABC Dig Radio - Windows Media stream
