Hi,

My 209e has arrived and is giving me all the normal Freeview channels. However, I'm unable to tune it into the HD ones. According to this site, 
the HD channels are all available on a separate MUX:

http://www.ukfree.tv/txdetail.php?a=TQ339712

256QAM 32k 2/3
40Mb/s
DVB-T2 MPEG4

50 BBC One HD (UK service without regions), 51 ITV 1 HD (ITV London), 52 Channel 4 HD London ads, 54 BBC HD,
• as a digital multiplex transmitted on frequency C31 (554.0MHz)

So I tried adding a new line to the uk-CrystalPalace file from dvb-apps:

T 554000000 8MHz 2/3 NONE QAM256 32k 1/32 NONE

However, scandvb rejects the "32k" part and still refuses to tune in, although I do get the PIDs:

0x0000 0x4440: pmt_pid 0x0064 BBC -- BBC HD (running)
0x0000 0x44c4: pmt_pid 0x00c8 ITV -- ITV1 HD (running)
0x0000 0x4500: pmt_pid 0x012c CHANNEL FOUR -- Channel 4 HD (running)
0x0000 0x4484: pmt_pid 0x19c8 BBC -- BBC One HD (running)

So it looks like I'm going to have to create entries in my channels.conf file manually. Does anyone have a working one that s/he could share, please?

Thanks,
Chris
