You don't need to give all the other stuff, it gets that itself as part of the scan same as it would if you just used the "scan everything" option.

I think it depends on the device driver, too.  With my DVB-T/T2 PCTV 
290e I have to enter the frequency, 8 Mz bandwidth and 256-QAM before it 
will see the DVB-T2 mux; given that, all else usually follows from the 
linking.  But I don't have a significant multi-Tx problem here.

AFAIR, initially I had almost given up on it - but then left vlc looking 
for an unspecified DVB-T signal and came back to find it playing in HD.
