I just finished a reply myself describing how I did it - and I imported 
the channels.conf.  But yes, I tried the scan, and that worked too.    
As I already had done the scan using the scan dvb app, it was just 
easier to import that, as I knew it was working.

The transports required are in the example files that come with scan 
(like the canberra-au in my example)

# Australia / Canberra / Woden
# T freq bw fec_hi fec_lo mod transmission-mode guard-interval hierarchy
T 205625000 7MHz 3/4 3/4 QAM64 8k 1/16 NONE
# Seven
T 177500000 7MHz 2/3 NONE QAM64 8k 1/8 NONE
# Nine
T 191625000 7MHz 3/4 NONE QAM64 8k 1/16 NONE
# Ten
T 219500000 7MHz 3/4 1/2 QAM64 8k 1/16 NONE
T 543500000 7MHz 2/3 NONE QAM64 8k 1/8 NONE

As I said, for me, SBS was a different frequency.  I guess it varies 
around Australia.
