Initial scan file no longer works for uk-WinterHill

Asked by mailpjm on 2009-12-05


The UK-Winterhill region has just been through the terrestrial turn off ie FreeView only on the 2nd December.
They have also altered the existing digital channel assignments. Since the 2nd MY TV can no longer show the saved channels that were working and using the UK-WinterHill initial scan file now finds 0 channels.

Please advise
Many thanks,

Might I suggest getting w_scan from the ubuntu repositories and using
that to create the channel information for your region...

then do two things with the information you generate,

1. Enjoy watching DVB-T television!

2. Forward the information onto the DVB guys on Linux-tv to get your
regional channel information included in future releases of the DVB-Apps

once you have w_scan installed to create the channel info you will need
to use option 1 in Me TV ...

Open a terminal ... then type w_scan -x > file_name (this can be what
you want to call it!)
