Description

I don't think this has been implemented but it would be awesome if we could import services from a remote Tvheadend instance via HTSP where no http access is available. Would make a great alternative to people trying to use sat>ip over VPN.

+1 for this, wanted to ask for this for some time ;).

Wuld be usefull on any/all levels (just one channel-with-epg, an entire MUX; or a whole network), for instance if you have/want to run multiple tvheadends (one in the attice for sat, one in the basement for Cable, or multiple locations), currently this cannot easily be done...

While I like the idea & I personally don't have any direct need for it right now, but it would be extremely useful in the future.

And, just today I was trying to help a guy setup Tvheadend. He'd been given access to someone's tvh server, but only had htsp access & wanted to record/relay the stream(s). He assumed he could import it as an IPTV stream!

The only issues I can think of is, service providers using Tvheadend may not want end users relaying via HTSP.
Should there be an option to stop such usage? I suppose they can use ip blocking?

+1 from me :-) would be great to have a "backup" TVH instance in the web
