Go here:


and check which transmitter you're using (displayed in a dark grey box 
on the right after you've put your postcode in). Initial check suggests 
it might be Sandy Heath?

Once you've got that, use this link to get the transmitter details for 
scan. You can insert these into their own config file.


Note that scan may need the '-n' option to get all the channels.

When I tried to let Myth 0.17 scan for channels, I had to input all the 
extra info that scan needed, including frequency, qam, fec etc.

Hope this helps.
