> How many transmitters are there for DVB-T in the UK?

There are loads if you include relay transmitters but for tuning there
should be just a button that says "Tune" (perhaps with the two default
timeouts set a bit higher by default and just do a full scan) - the
pages of related tuning options there is very confusing.

I have tried MythTV 0.22 and even I can't work out how the tuning is
working.  It is asking multiple question on whether to add new
channels, delete old ones.  If I answer with what I think are sensible
answers I end up with channels from just the last multiplex (or some
other kind of hybrid of incomplete channels).  I am still using
0.21fixes on the live machine as it works and with digital switch over
and whatever I know how the tuning process works.

Anyway going off topic and I still think apart from the removing of
old or none working options there is going to be no ideal answer to
please everyone and the best answer is probably some kind of highly
customisable settings template type system with Load/Save options.
Even then I think it sounds like a lot of work and only worth it if it
is going to work well and have significant benefits.
