Good stuff, does anyone know the format that Myth is expecting.

I received this, which is great but now I see that it's missing fields.
Ffrr send me a great sample file.
I tried to imported the data, what do you know it worked.
But I still am unclear as to what the fields are, except for the obvious
At this point I can tune channels with azap, dvbscan or scan (renamed),
dvbtraffic gives me great info. I can cat traffic into mplayer and view my
HD video. But when I use my output file from scan Myth fails to import it.
sample output using -c -o zap
 (0x0007) 00: PCR == V V 0x0800 A 0x0801 (eng)
 (0x0008) 00: PCR == V V 0x0840 A 0x0841 (eng)
 (0x0009) 00: PCR == V V 0x0880 A 0x0881 (eng)
Sample output -c
So can anyone shed light as to what seems wrong with these config files?
Or at least open this format up so I can duplicate it by hand if need be.
Name:freq:??:bandwidth:??:??:Modulation:??:??:??:??:?? <- one of the last 3
is sub_channel I think.
