First up have you using dvbtune for which you need to know the LO of your
You need to run dvbtune to lock onto the ITV transponder
dvbtune -c <CARD> -f <FREQUENCY> -s <SR> -p <POL> -m
Take a look at http://www.lyngsat.com/28east.html for transponder details
EG if your LNB LO is 10750 then for transponder 10758000 you need
dvbtune -c 0 -f 8000 -s 22000 -p v -m
Once you get a lock you can run dvbsnoop to grab the data
dvbsnoop -adapter 0 -nph -n 6 0x10 > freesat.nit
dvbsnoop -adapter 0 -nph -n 6 0x11 > freesat.sdt
Hope this makes sense.
