Try not to top post.

Best to post the results of tzap here:

In Ubuntu, Debian;
sudo apt-get install dvb-utils
(other distros use dvb-apps)

Find the scan file appropriate for your area (au-*) in:
/usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/dvb-t

sudo -s -H
mkdir /root/.tzap
scan /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/dvb-t/au-* > 
/root/.tzap/channels.conf

Post the output of scan to this list.

Regards,
Timf
