Every mux created for an IPTV Automatic network adds "get.php - " to the beginning of the mux name. It is pulling this from url of the network for some reason.

Example network URL

Every mux name created looks like this

get.php - BET Low BW
get.php - ABC EAST Local

Why is tvheadend appending the get.php - from the network url to the beginning of every mux name?

Tvheadend is not a webbased applicattion to use PHP.

I am not sure why you responded with the output url of tvheadend. The issue I am bringing up is when muxes are created from an IPTV Automatic Network.

Refer to the attached images. Network_config.png is the configuration of the IPTV network. The URL is what is used to grab all the channels. Tvheadend is taking the section from the url after the / and before the ? and putting that at the beginning of every mux name. Refer to the mux_names.png file and you will see exactly what I am referring to.

When you map services name is as is.

I am not talking about the service name, that is actually correct. The mux themselves are appending the get.php from the m3u url. Please refer to my post and examples above.

This is internal data not efecting client's.

Rename you request as "Automatic IPTV input Renaming"

the site won't allow me to rename the original issue. I am not sure how I can rename it.

There is simple solution, download playlist locally name it how you want point tvh to local playlist file
Also can cron re-download playlist if needed.
