Here's a listing of the first two entries in each mux from the terminal
output when I run mythtvsetup (or mythtv-setup.real) from the command
I believe the entries are modulation type, frequency, name, Freeview
channel, netid, country code 9018(UK), PAT chanid, muxid=muxid,
mythchanid - and those names are only indicative.
All these are SD signals from a single transmitter, Waltham, which
apparently uses netid code 12323. HTH :-)
