[mythtv-users] What does all the tzap output mean?

I've installed my DVB card and seem to get sensible channel info from
my "local" transmitter (Isle Of Wight, yet I live in Brighton, East
Sussex which is around 60 miles away, so I have a mast mounted
booster, and downstairs splitter.)

Can someone point me in the right direction for what, or rather how
good/bad this is;

[root at htpc szap]# ./tzap "BBC ONE"
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
tuning to 489833330 Hz
video pid 0x0258, audio pid 0x0259
status 00 | signal 0000 | snr 0000 | ber 00a42a0e | unc 002da4b3 | 
status 1f | signal 4900 | snr 4600 | ber 00a42a0e | unc 002da4b3 | FE_HAS_LOCK

FW_HAS_LOCK is good - but what about the signal, snr, ber and unc?
