Comment (by kenni):

 A summary of my observations and the overall problem:[[BR]]
 My current DVB-T tuner is capable of autodetecting all parameters, and
 apparently it only uses the frequencies from MythTV, the rest of the
 parameters in the frequency table in MythTV are ignored. So an auto-
 capable tuner WILL find all the mentioned Danish channels with the current
 frequency table, but if a tuner which doesn't support "Auto", relies on
 the frequency table in MythTV, it will only find the FTA channels in DK,
 but not the commercial Boxer channels or the local CPH channels.[[BR]]
 One way to fix the scanning for non-auto capable tuners with the current
 implementation, would be to add one frequency table for each broadcaster,
 each with the same frequency range, but with different parameters.
 However, this breaks auto-capable tuners, as they will find the same
 channels multiple times. So with the current channelscanner
 implementation, the existing Danish frequency table in trunk is the best
 we can do.
