I've found you need to give the channel scanner some "starting" values -
It then seems to find all other options by itself.
The values you need can be found in a channels.conf file, as used by the
tool "tzap". Such a file can be created using the tool "scan". Example
.conf files (as well as the tzap and scan apps) are in the Debian
For example, from
The values are handily in the order Myth wants them, so just plug in
numbers until you run out of spaces, and hit next - it'll then scan not
only that frequency, but all others which are "linked" to that one, e.g.
in my case 850000000 and others are also scanned when i ask for 578000000
This may or may not be the intended behaviour, but it works for me.
