Ok, thanks.  I think I understand this better now.

RE: manually setting the video/audio pids on the EXT option, thanks - 
selecting different channels within iptvstream.sh works well now
NasaTV Public:1:IPTV|S0P0|EXT|iptvstream.sh|1:P:0:2:3:0:0:1:0:0:0
Shine TV:2:IPTV|S0P0|EXT|iptvstream.sh|4:P:0:5:6:0:0:1:0:0:0

RE: selecting different streams with a FILE .ts - this still doesn't work
FileTest;IPTV:5:IPTV|S0P1|FILE|/video/vdr/testfile.ts|5:P:0:35+514:34:2321:0:3:0:0:0

CH3;T:5:IPTV|S0P1|FILE|/video/vdr/testfile.ts|5:P:0:0:0:0:0:103:182:1:0


I've also tried playing around with the file delay option, but it doesn't 
seem to make any difference.
