Sorry.  Mine is in the database (and I only really have one station in 
there, so it's not a very good example).  However, the "default" 
streams.res is at (assuming you installed in /usr/local):

I highly recommend just putting a direct link in there.  It seems that 
MythStream has some problems recognizing the handlers (i.e. icecast.pl, 
shoutcast.pl, etc.).  I have MythStream and StreamTuned installed, and 
when I run StreamTuned attached to my database storage, it uses the 
handler without any problems.  When I run MythStream attached to the 
exact same database storage, it doesn't run the handler, but uses a 
generic "HTML" handler and just spits out every single link in the page 
(so I have to skip over 20 or so links to find the one I need).

For example, I recommend going to SHOUTcast and finding a radio station 
you'd be interested in hearing.  Then, right-click on the "Tune In" 
button and copy the link location.  Paste that URL (the one ending with 
"playlist.pls") as the URL for your stream.
