I'm not sure I understand this.  A couple of questions:

- By the "original scan file", do you mean the channels.conf file
  described at http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Zap ?  If so,
  what might be wrong with it, in particular the au-Adelaide file?
  I've had no trouble with it with the DVICO Fusion cards.

- What's "tda10046 safe"?  In particular, what values do you think
  might be incorrect?  How would one go about establishing what's
  wrong?

Is this version significantly different from the one described at
http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Scan ?

It would appear that transponders in Adelaide are all 7 MHz.

Where would this be?

I'd certainly be interested in what differences you have in the
configuration file.

I'd certainly be interested.

This card (if it's the one I'm thinking of) looks like being the
cheapest locally available DVB-T card, so it would be nice to get good
support for it.
