Wonder if you can help, I am very confused by the setting in myth
related to the Nova-s, I have managed to prove that the cards work by
scanning :-
scan -a0 -x 0
-n /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/dvb-s/Astra-28.2E
Which produces a list of the channels fine.

However I then try and scan using the mythbackend setup and all I get
under connect source input is :-
Error parsing parameters ?
Ok so I assume I need to put in a Frequency ? Polarity? and symbol
rate ? Any idea where I might find that information for Astra 28.8E
Freesat? I assume it is one of these ?

paul at vs:~$ scan -a 0 -x 0
-n /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/dvb-s/Astra-28.2E
scanning /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/dvb-s/Astra-28.2E
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
initial transponder 10773000 H 22000000 5
initial transponder 11778000 V 27500000 2

Regards a very confused Paul.
