Indeed. Even after the long, ardours process of finding channels and 
manually creating the m3u file, IPTV is fantastic under Myth. There's 
only 2 things that could make it better:

Binding IPTV Tuners to specific network interfaces (So you can "emulate" 
more than one STB)


Checking for Empty recordings (So a 0-byte file is not listed as 
"Recorded", some kind of timeout would be ideal).

Admittedly I'm using:

rjohnston at mythtv:~$ mythfrontend --version
Please attach all output as a file in bug reports.
MythTV Version   : 24584
MythTV Branch    : trunk
Network Protocol : 56
Library API      : 0.23.20100509-2

Which is a little old now, so perhaps these issues have been fixed. But 
beyond those, I'm finding IPTV under Myth to be a perfect match.
