The iptv input may work, but it may only work with udp or rtsp, not
sure about http.
You can set it up in mythvideo quite easily, albeit without scheduling
etc (this method is really ony suitable for watching, not recording).
1. in your mythvideo directory make a file containing the url you want
to watch., eg:
echo "http://nasa.gov/path/to/nasatv.mp4" > /var/lib/mythtv/video/nasatv.pls
(that path is made up by the way, I have no idea of the url to nasatv)
2. in mythvideo settings on your frontend add a new filetype as pls
and make the custom player command
mplayer -fs -zoom -quiet -vo xv -cache 8192 -playlist %s
you can add your own options, the key is the -playlist option which
treats the file as a list of streams to play as opposed to a video
file. -cache buffers stuff which you may or may not need depending on
your network connectivity.
3. make sure to run video manager to add the new file into mythvideo.
4. profit :)
Theres probably a way to do this with mythstream too come to think of it.
