Mythtv fails on some livetv channels

Hello there all,

I have a question. I'm using mythtv for over 3 years now with the iptv (m3u) functionality. As of shortly my provider change a couple of channel to a different ip/port number (like BBC1) but after the change the mythtv fails on connection on that ip/port. When i use the default box of the provider i see an image on my screen so i know it is working. All other channels work even some of the changed one but the BBC and some others fail. It looks like that these channels use different codecs or something but i can't figure out what it is.

I started my backend with -v all to have a complete log(attached at mail) when i start the BBC1 (udp:// but i can't figure out why it fails.. Only thing i see is that it is trying to figure out what codec to use.. But not more that that.

Please could you guys help me to get the channels working again, because i'm a little afraid that they will change more channels and then my mythtv setup won't work anymore and i need to go to the dedicated (crappy) box of the provider

After some more debugging.. It looks like there is a change in codec usage.. I found another 2 channels that they changed.. I hope somebody can help me with this issue.. How is it possible to update/change codecs?
