Not hand-poked :-) Used the channel editor in mythtv-setup, just entered
the correct frequencies there. The scanner doesn't work over here:

This is (I'm pretty sure) exactly what I've done (with a different
tv_grab_nl though). "It always worked in the past" :-(
Jos, I assume you're running a 0.24 version? Maybe I'll try downgrading
(using 0.25 for the new audio code), or checking the commits for any
changes in channel selecting using frequencies...
What kind of surprises me is:

where a frequency appears to go into a function related to channel
