Technically speaking, udp://ip.add.re.ss:port is correct. the @ syntax 
is for when there is authentication required, like so: 
udp://username:password@ip.add.re.ss:port/. If you put in the former 
style in VLC, it too will work.

The errors you are getting because the file hasn't been created yet. 
This is probably due to there being a problem tuning it. If your 
interface has cycled recently (gone down and up again), it may be that 
your backend needs to be restarted to notice it's back up.

I'm presuming that you are trying to tune using VLC on the same box (the 
backend system). If not, that might be something to test also.
