Hi Noah,
No I dont know. But you can try either to search the archives of the QGIS users group or contact the list

Hi Pierre,
Do you know of anyone who does use these TMS layers within QGIS? I am very interested in making this work. Not sure why my .tsv files are causing an error.

I have been using the TileLayer Plugin with the same syntax but I keep getting this error downloading message: 
It seems to recognize the files I am trying to download but can't access them for some reason.

You need to install the Tilelayer Plugin. From Internet / OpenLayers plugin Menu, this provides a list of available tms layers such as osm.
I have not tried adding a custom layer in QGIS, but the TileLayerPlugin github page describes how to specify custom layers.
Example of the syntax recognized by this pluginRoadMap FreeTileMap http://freetilemap.example.com/road/{z}/{x}/{y}.png  You would then have to convert the link provided in the Nepal Imagery wiki page for Martadi replacing {zom} by {z}

I'm trying to figure out how to bring in Tile Mapping Service within QGIS using the TileLayer plugin. I have attached a .tsv file that I am using to try and access the Martadi imagery tiles from this page: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nepal_imagery_hosted_by_Google_Crisis_Response
Please let me know if you have any suggestions for how to get this to work. I want to create educational materials (labs) to show how OSM data/imagery can be used to explore world events in great detail and tell a story about how certain data is actually being utilized on the ground. For example, a module may be:
a. Using the imagery and available data identify all of the IDP camps in a neighborhood of Kathmandu
b. Estimate the population density assuming 3 people per X square meters of tent
c. Given some total amount of resources (food, water, medical supplies, clothing etc.), allocate X amount of resources to each IDP camp based on that population density
d. Determine how long it will take to get to each camp assuming an average speed of X km/hour while taking into account downed bridges and blocked roads

Getting imagery into QGIS is my biggest hurdle so far!
