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

TV Server, DVB-IP Mediaportal IPTV Source filter

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 !
