[mythtv-users] Failing to find Freesat channels

I've got a Hauppauge Nova-S-Plus DVB-S and want to use it to watch the UK
Freesat channels.
If I try tuning with say the 1st frequency listed on
http://www.lyngsat.com/28east.html then myth fails to find any channels.

Freq: 10714000
Polarity: h
Symbol rate: 22000000
FEC: 5/6
Inversion: auto

So I've tried using "scan" from the command line and I get a lot of this...

Network Name 'ASTRA'
>>> tune to: 11973:v:0:27500
DVB-S IF freq is 1373000
0x07de 0x1d39: pmt_pid 0x0121 BSkyB -- ITV1 HD (running, scrambled)
0x07de 0x1cfc: pmt_pid 0x0100 BSkyB -- Sony TV Asia (running, scrambled)
0x07de 0x1d06: pmt_pid 0x0102 BSkyB -- MAX (running, scrambled)
0x07de 0x1d1a: pmt_pid 0x011f BSkyB -- ITV1 Central S (running)
0x07de 0x1d1b: pmt_pid 0x011e BSkyB -- ITV1 Central E (running)
0x07de 0x1d38: pmt_pid 0x0120 BSkyB -- ITV1 HD (running, scrambled)

Where the channels are found but listed as scrambled. The 1st frequency I
tried is also listed but fails...

>>> tune to: 10714:h:0:22000 (tuning failed)
DVB-S IF freq is 964000
WARNING: >>> tuning failed!!!

Once "scan" has finished it does output a list of the channels it's found
but none go the main ones,
e.g. BBC 1, BBC 2, Channel 4, Channel 4, BBC HD, etc.... are not on there.

Any one got any ideas what's wrong?
