Are you using iptvstream.sh or some other way of controlling vlc?
Handling of vlc shutdown was changed in iptvstream.sh in plugin version
0.0.6. I wonder if your iptvstream.sh uses the new approach which was
supposed to be more reliable.

Heh. Sorry for all the premature hair loss. :)
The configuration of the plugin is indeed not as simple as I'd like.
However we are already pushing the capability boundaries of
channels.conf to the limit which means that channel configuration is not
straightforward. Also interaction with vlc brings its own level of
complexity to the process.
