[vdr] channels.conf for uk-PontoPike?

Mon Apr 18 21:44:21 CEST 2005


Wll you see I tried scanning. Indeed I tried scanning all of the 
transmitters in my local area. But I simply came up blank. I cannot 
tune. (This is despite the fact that I can tune with Kaffeine/KAXTV).

Which makes me wonder anyway... It is so much easier to tune with 
Kaffeine... Why don't all DVB apps use this tuning scheme? It is much 
more useful for the average user to use.


Anyway, here are the results of my scanning efforts.
