In both examples with scan and with the myth setup wizard you are getting the
same results which are becasue the CCTV uplink has an invalid NIT table.  If
you dump it you will see that it is clearly not what you tuned to.  It says the
Satellite is located at something that doesn't exist like -130W, and the
symbolrate, frequency etc are all wrong.. Its possible this is a valid NIT for
one of the CCTV Uplinks available in another hemisphere but not in North

Everything else looks good.. If you go into videosource and manually set the
transponder for CCTV you should get good results.  I test with this transponder
a good deal.

Just add the transponder under videosources, and then do a existing transport
scan on the one you just added and all shall be fine..
