yeah, i have the same problem. don't know how to add IPTV Streams.
To answer your Question Niels, i read somewhere in the XBMC Forum that http streams are not supported by TVHeadend.
So i'm wondering if there maybe other formats that works?

For me, the streams looks like this:

#‎EXTINF:-1 CHANNEL-NAME

rtmp://$OPT:rtmp-raw=rtmp://SERVER-IP/liverepeater playpath=XXXX pageUrl=http://url.com
or
#‎EXTINF:-1 CHANNEL-NAME

rtmp://$OPT:rtmp-raw=rtmp://SERVER-IP/liverepeater playpath=XXXX swfUrl=http://url.com/playlistname.swf live=1 pageUrl=http://url.com token=#atd%#$ZH live=N.SAT

and i have absolutely no clue how to add them. Also the official documentation is from 2012 and is outdated.
I already enabled IPTV under Configuration -> DVB Inputs -> Networks
Than i wanted to add a Stream under Configuration -> DVB Inputs -> Muxes -> Add -> IPTV Network
but than i'm stuck. No idea what to add here.

It look like it will only take an IP address and port number.

It look like Mythtv can do it.

Bud I would like to use tvheadend.

hm... yeah, i don't want to use MythTV too because i'm having problems with MythWeb and MySQL...
I also tried DVBLink which is now also available for Linux. Its looking great. But it's not for free - and for me , one of the most important things i'm missing there is a Plex-Plugin.
But maybe it's an alternative for you.

for me, i'm happy with TVHeadend since 5 Years. Only problem is IPTV :)

But for TVHeadend, is there anyone out there who have any sort of IPTV working with TVHeadend? Pls help us :)

Update: i found another IPTV-discussion going on: https://tvheadend.org/boards/5/topics/11489?r=12547#message-12547

I dont think its possible to add this types of iptv sources in tvheadend. Maybe make a feature ticket for it.
iam hoping rtsp could be used as a source also.

tvheadend is great i think, i favour it before mythtv
