I don't know. Do you know what problem we're trying to solve, i.e. what
would give rise to the "TuningSignalCheck: SignalMonitor failed" error

Is this because the stream doesn't reach myth, is it because there is
some sort of syntax issue with the stream, ... ?

I'm asking because I suspect that feeding the stream straight into the
backend will lead to problems because the stream contains lots of
zero-length MPEG-TS packets (i.e. 60-byte MPEGTS/UDP packets that
contain no MPEGTS payload), and I believe that ffmpeg filters them out.
