the location that you specify for your .m3u file... Is that local address
(/home/me/channels.m3u) or http (http://localhost/channels.m3u) style?

When I did local file it gave me
 IPTVChanFetch, Error: Invalid channel list header ()

but running it as a link through apache may have worked...

if that's the case then local .m3u's may not work anymore.

When you clicked on 'Scan for channels' (or whatever it's called on the m3u
import screen) did you get any feedback?
 I got no feedback, and none of the channels were available in the channel
editor, but the backend log says

IPTVChan(1): Loaded 134 channels from

I checked the channels table in mythconverg and they had made it in there.
