Description

I created a channels.conf for my DVB-S setup using the "scan"-utility, then I imported it into mythtv. Mythtv took exactly the numbers that were mentioned in the file, which means that the frequency was measured in MHz (e.g. 11836) and the Symbol Rate was 27500. I received warnings like this: 2006-02-28 01:23:03.962 DVB#0 WARNING - Your frequency setting (9738047) is out of range. (min/max:950000/2150000) 2006-02-28 01:23:03.962 DVB#0 WARNING - Symbol Rate setting (27500) is out of range (min/max:703125/45000000)

The problem was solved by adding "000" to each frequency and each Symbol Rate, so I ended up with 11836000 and 27500000 as the correct values. I think the channels.conf-import-routine should have done this conversion for me :-)

(btw: The transponder-menu wanted me to enter the frequencies in Hz which is also wrong since I had to enter kHz numbers. Entering Hz-numbers failed because only 32bit values seem to be accepted.)

My System: P4 @ 2400 MHz, 768 MB RAM, Linux 2.6.15-rc7, Debian etch, TechniSat? SkyStar? 2 TV
