[mythtv-users] Using NetworkRecorder to watch TV streams

I've been using Mythbuntu 8.04 with the latest version of MythTV  
(0.21). I've been trying to configure the backend to provide a couple  
of channels streamed out over the internet. I created the M3U file  
like this:

#EXTINF:-1,1 - cnn
#EXTINF:-1,2 - bbc world
#EXTINF:-1,3 - sky news
#EXTINF:-1,4 - extreme tv

I configured the capture card ok, then the video source and the input  
connections, scanning for the channels which were correctly added to  
the channel list.
In the frontend, I select Watch TV, but I get no image after a few  
seconds. A pop appears saying something like:

You should have gotten a channel lock by now. You can continue...etc...

Does the NetworkRecorder work with these streams? Or is it an issue  
with the MythTV internal player?
