I have done this, but I use ivtvctl instead.

but use 
$ ivtvctl --set-freq=tuner=0,freq=189250
instead, shouldn't that work?
Checked a bit more. No it doesn't. The freq is apparently some kind of channel 
number. But I got it working now.

And also got it working with Mythtv now. Some mixup is happening with the 
channels, I have to fine tune them all by -107.

From what I have tried now it does seem really nice.
