Summary:
Add a checkbox for adding IPTV channels without checking signal level and signal quality.

Area:
TV Server, DVB-IP Mediaportal IPTV Source filter

Description:
If you use IPTV channels, it is good to update them once or twice a month to make all channels work well. But the updating of the IPTV channels is painstakingly slow as there may be about a thousand of them and the scan takes about 5 seconds for every channel in the m3u files.

My suggestion is to add a checkbox for skipping the checking of the channel signals, and that it just adds the channels. Maybe something like this:
[ ] Add channels without checking signal (warning, may add not working channels)

    It's because it scans PID, etc, it is needed for MP if I'm not wrong.
    So not sure if it's doable !

    Thanks for this new release of MP. The link on the presentation page of the new version is incorrect. It goes on the MP 1.24 thread.

    Updated one of my MP installations (from 1.15) to 1.24 Final recently. It went perfectly smoothly, and fixed a few problems I had been having with video playback. Updated my plugins and Streamed MP skin, and not a single issue. Thank you for all your hard work.
