Well, I installed it and configured it, and it didn't seem to work for
me :(  I'm running a system in the UK with 2 dvb-t cards.  No matter
what I attempt to do I get 'tuning failed' :(
I suspect it the transport step I'm getting wrong, I'm entering the
largish value at the start (or thereabouts) of each line in the
channels.conf file.  Is this the correct value to be using?

This is what I see reported to console (no idea if this is any use to you!) :
