Hello all.
I was trying to watch TV programs delivered by VLC and ran into some issues.
The mythbackend was configured to read channels from ~/playlist.m3u, in
which I had 4 channels, but when it started scanning for channels the tuning
progress just stayed 0%. After 15min of 0% tuning I pressed *Finish* and
found that mythbackend had only found the first channel.
Mythfrontend also found that channel but I could not watch that program.
Any clues on what this is caused by and how to fix it?

My playlist.m3u contents:
#EXTINF:0,199 - VLC Streaming

#EXTINF:0,200 - VLC Streaming RTP

#EXTINF:0,201 - HD Camera

#EXTINF:0,202 - CET3

where channel 199 and 200 are provided by VLC(local video files), channel
201 are streamed from a HD Camera which has a built-in streaming server, and
channel 202 are MMS service provided by my school. VLC can playback all of
MythTV is installed in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx[32bit], and the version is
MythVideo works just fine(using internal player).
