    Default Home IPTV Server

    I currently have a home server running TVHeadEnd for standard Freesat HD across my network at home. It works well, I live alone, whatever TV/PC/Smart box I use is able to watch freeview from it without the need of a seperate antenna in each room.
    If I hit the
    Code: [View]
    http://serverip:9981/playlist
    url then it gives me a full m3u for the TVH server to use with VLC etc.

    I also have a couple of IPTV accounts I pay for, just for premium sports mainly.
    Is there any way I can add the m3u from the IPTV package as a tuner/services list in TVH or any other software I could use to serve everything?

    I wouldnt want it active all the time, just trying to see if I can get all my channels in 1 place. eg, 1 big m3u and it uses the source required when I ask for it.

    Thanks

    Most iptv providers only provide one connection per m3u so you'd need a multiroom sub or have multiple m3us.

    If Im honest I forgot about DF. I was just going through a few old site url's. I used to spend a lot of time here years ago but life changed

    As for the TV thingy, I know providers only allow 1 connection per account, but I was wondering if I could add the account to something like TVH so when I ask for a channel in whatever room I'm using (cant watch more than 1 channel) It just plays from an available account/tuner.

    Its ok, for now I have merged the tvh m3u, and the 2 from my iptv providers with a small bash script. It updates the list every day at midnight, simply grabs the 3 from my links and just copies the contents into a single file. It works for now.
