I've tried to do this also, I'm still on .29 and found information on setting up a network tuner with a m3u file, but I was not able to get it to work.  The contents of that m3u is

doug at desktop:~/Desktop$ cat playlist.m3u

#EXTINF:0,501 - Back Yard


#EXTINF:0,502 - Driveway


I have 2 cameras that I can use VLC to stream, so I tried to add channels 501 and 502 to Myth.

I can select those a channels in Myth, but it does not provide a video stream.

I'd be interested in this as well, but do not know for certain if my version of Myth is compatible.
