I'll have a look at this as well, given my current issues (see thread "Yet another
retune (and it's not working) - Granada region". My issue is failing to get any
channels from Mux C (Dave, Sky3 plus various others). It scans fine but gets the
wrong frequency for these channels, even when using a channels.conf which has the
correct frequency in it.

I'm on 0.21-fixes. I also get multiple copies of various BBC channels (3 + 4 plus
most of the radio stations).
