I have noticed the same thing with a good strong signal at 35N, but I have only
tried with Myth so I don't know if its a signal issue or a myth issue..

I added in some code to szap to do this for testing..

For this I am in the middle of making this work.. You can do two things here..
1. go into mysql and run
Update dvb_transport set networkid=1,transportid=1 where dvb_tid=4;
(set the networkid and transportid to 1 and 4 for this transport)
or just wait for me to get another patch out and try it out then.. Since you
manually added hte transport the all important networkid and transportid never
got input.. Once again an oversight, but this is only patch 1.. It did happen
to pick up the stations available on that transport (i glanced at lyngsat)..

Its well doucmented on the mythtv website, so look there..  I also think my
cohort John showed where it was earlier..
