When I boot my provider STB, it comes up with some clues - such as:
QAM64
Freq 586000
then scans saying 'network number 82' and 'provider TelstraClear'

So I updated by itial tuning file to:
# TCL Initial Testing
# 2007-28-05
# freq sr fec mod
C 586000000 6900000 NONE QAM64
C 586000000 5860000 NONE QAM64


but still get:
[root at media1 scan]# ./scan -i 0 dvb-c/nz-telstraclear
scanning dvb-c/nz-telstraclear
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
initial transponder 586000000 6900000 0 3
initial transponder 586000000 5860000 0 3
>>> tune to: 586000000:INVERSION_OFF:6900000:FEC_NONE:QAM_64

Any ideas?
