Apologies - I clearly should have stated this was my opinion for the
UK's Freeview/Freesat services (although I am still envious about the
fact you only have 5 muxes *in total* :) ).

My current 0.22-fixes build has 98 muxes defined - 6 for DVB-T
(Freeview), and 92 for DVB-S (Freesat and other FTA channels on the
28.2E/28.5E Eurobird/Astra2 constellation).
