The HLS recorder works like any other IPTV source. It takes a URL to a
m3u playlist file that contains the list of HLS streams (URL to m3u8)
Example: the playlist provided in the commit you refer to contains:
#EXTINF:0,300 - NASA TV (English)
#EXTINF:0,301 - Al Jazeera (English)
#EXTINF:0,302 - France 24 (French)
In this file, you can define an XMTV feed and xmltvid, but this isn't provided.
Like any other recorder, you need to provide a XMLTV feed and set the
xmltv id for each channel.
I have written a data grabber for those channels a while back, but it
needs work as I haven't updated it in years:
In the mean time, you can either use manual recording, or simply watch
the channel using LiveTV.
I'll write a wiki entry about it
