Goto http://www.ukfree.tv/, put in your postcode and it'll tell you the
transport/muxes you should be getting.  It'll also tell which
transmitter(s) you should be receiving on.  You'll find some table for
the transmitters in /usr/share/dvb/dvb-t/"TX_NAME" where TX_NAME is the
name of your local Tx; this is on ubuntu.  These two will give you a
pretty good idea of what the transports should be.  You can always put
the correct transport data in manually in myth_backend, slow but it
might give you what you want.  Of course there might be some other
problem but this gives you something to work on.
