I assume your running the latest *stable* mythtv. When you say "When trying
to tune to BBC1 using the frequency tested under tzap/dvbsteam of 489833330
I still get nothing" Where did you put this frequency? From looking at your
attachments, if you didn't do so already you want to create a new transport
with the following details:
Bandwidth: 8 MHz
Constellation: QAM 16
LP Coderate: Auto (I never bothered figuring out which was which out of
these two so just left em at auto)
HP Coderate: Auto
Trans. Mode: 2K
Gaurd Interval: 1/32
But I had to set up ALL of my 6 transports for WinterHill manually. The
above will only give you BBC channels if the scan works.
