Yes: I should have been more careful. Enter the frequencies there and
let the TIDs be found by the scan; I put in the comment about that
because of the problems I had with my HD tuner. For that the scan found
the NETIDs and TIDs but _didn't_ put them into the database.
HD recordings then failed.
Use transport editor to define the frequency of one or more muxes as
quoted above for Sandy Heath or found from eg
Then: Delete all dvb-t channels. Scan all known transports with 'link
transports' enabled; after that examine transports again and delete any
for which no ID info has appeared. Repeat until you have five SD
transports and no duplicate channels.
For HD (with a DVB-T capable tuner) see the start and end of this thread:
