add iptv streams (e.g. m3u playlist) without scans for services
Currently when adding a e.g. m3u playlist from an iptv provider, tvh needs to scan through the list (checking for input/signal) and only after that adds it as a service to the list as a channel.
The desired behaviour would be to able to add the services/channels without doing the scan/check for a signal.
There are several threads on the forum describing the issue with the current way tvh works, thus this feature request

For me it doesnt work. I get services without scan, but if i map channels, they dont work at all.
I tested same provider two times.
With scanning muxes -> get services from working channels -> map channels: channels are ok, stream ok
Without scan -> service id = 0 and create without scan -> mapped channel (same like above), stream doesnt work
Its a bug?
I found one thread with same issue:
I will check if there exists one reported bug.

Seems there is a bug here, from my testing..
- Services won't play at all unless scanned first, regardless of Service ID (whether it's correct or not).
- To get the services to play (using the services play link) the service must be played using the mux play link first otherwise it results in an invalid service.
A possible (and maybe horrible) solution would be just to redirect to the mux links?
