I haven't followed the DVB list that closely, but I think there is an issue with the size of offsets from center frequencies in Aus?  I think the driver assumes only a certain sized +/- offset and I saw noticed a suggestion to tweak YOUR given frequency a bit so that at least it can then scan either side to find the correct freq...

Bit vague, but suggest following the DVB list and see if that helps?

This is effectively a patch for the main program.  mc.sql is included in the main distribution and hence will need updating when this code gets merged.
