fec is the hp_code_rate or similar from scan output, ie the main "forward error correction".  lp_code_rate appears to be less important, but it;s the other number and called lp_code_rate in the db

Pretty much everything can be got from scan, and the more you set the faster the channel change goes...  DVB-T uses nearly all the params in the table apart from hierarchy, polarity, and symbol_rate
