Full channel scan writes wrong frequency for transport

Reported by: lyricnz@… Owned by: Stuart Auchterlonie
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.23-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords: australia, channel 9, tuning
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Performing a full channel scan (empty channels+transports) successfully found 23 channels across 6 transports (including channel names etc). However, the frequency saved in the DB was incorrect, meaning that one transport could not be tuned. Here's the console output during channel scan:

The ones that are incorrect are:

auto:191500000:Nine Digital:9:12829:4114:1072:1072=1072:dvb     0:cnt(pnum:1,channum:1)

these are actually on 191625000 (as confirmed by Kaffeine). Updating the frequency in dtv_multiplex and restarting backend, and the channels work fine.

Some people in IRC suggest that there may be incorrect information being broadcast with these channels, and MythTV is using this when writing the frequencies. If it helps, I'm in Melbourne, Australia. Version is release-0-23-fixes branch, svn revision 25902

Can you attach logs from

mythtv-setup --verbose channelscan,channel,record,siparser

This will allow me to see what information is being signalled. Additionally the frequency listed in the output is different from the working frequency by the offset 12.5kHz, so it's possible it's using one of the offset frequencies in preference to the main (non offset) freq.
