Nope, but some hints is ok :)

You have an error in your database, more specifically:
You have probably not entered any info on the dvb screens in the
channel editor.

It's an automagically generated internal channel identification number.

I'm not sure which channel this is, but guessing.
Open this channel in the editor, and type in the following info:
[Go to this page: http://www.satcodx2.com/0192/uke/ and search for
frequency to find it.]

Channel name: ARD Das Erste
Frequency: 11.837
Polarity: H
Symbol Rate: 27500
Fec: 3/4
Video Pid: 101
Audio Pid: 102
Service ID: 1101

Also, if you look at the helptext (box at bottom) when moving around
in the editor, you will see what belongs to which cardtype (DVB-T/S/C).

Hope that helps.
