Seems like I can only record from a Roku, which I do not have. If there were a way to record on PC, that'd be great.

The directions above are for PC.

Weird random question - about once a week I have a stream end prematurely.  I can't seem to correlate it to anything - it's never the same day, time, or at the same place in the stream.  I've checked the modem log files and there don't appear to be any events that would trigger a loss of connection.  Anyone else experiencing this?

I'm sure the way above works, I'm just not that technologically advanced..maybe write all the steps in one message?

Resurrecting this because with the Whew! addition, I may be interested in exploring it further:

in the two years since, has the recording mechanism changed? Do we have a useful stream URL we can use?

(I wonder if a Plex server can be set up to do it. That would far and away be the most convenient solution for me.)

Recording the network stream in VLC still works for me just fine:

Hmm. You have any luck using VLM to schedule things?

Nah. I just let it run until I manually stop it, and then use MP4 Splitter to carve out the episodes I want to keep.

Yeah, that's about as far as I got too. Not optimal but it'll suit; I'm still researching ways to schedule the process.

What're you using as a splitter?

I use NextPVR, which is actually designed to work with TV tuner devices and antennas, but there's an option for using an M3U playlist for IPTV channels. Bonus is you can subscribe to TV listings and schedule recordings like an actual DVR.

I had no idea NextPVR did that for IPTV. I have it installed in two places (using my network tuner - basically I'm planning for the day Windows Media Center finally breathes its last breath) and will be investigating that. :)

Is there a URL I have to extract from the above or will that work straight up?

What I had to do was make a separate M3U playlist with the Buzzr feed listed in it, upload that to Google Drive, and point NextPVR to the direct file URL.

That's where I thought things were going when the m3u8 didn't want to import straight up.

So using your file, NPVR is sitting on  "Downloading m3u" and not showing me the channel or the option to save. What you did is about what I figured would need to be munged, so I wonder what NPVR is hung up on. Maybe I'll upload that to my own web space and see if a more direct URL will help.

Yep, finally got it, at least the m3u part, so that NPVR will like it. How are you getting your XMLTV listings? (I do have a Schedules Direct subscription, is it possible to pull from that?)
