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.
