This failed initially, due to the correct frequency information being wrong in the file

It lists only the 2k settings, not 8k. I assume the dvb people and the packagers will
catch up with this at some point.

If you update this file to include the following line (as root), and save it, then
scandvb will work correctly and produce a channels.conf file.

T 801833000 8MHz 3/4 NONE QAM64 8k 1/32 NONE

Running a channels.conf scan works using the generated file. Just checking using LiveTV
(only time I use it!), and the first few channels look fine.

Best of luck folks!
