Convincing MythTV to tune in to DVB-T2 MUXes

So that I remember for next time, and so I can start writing down some of the issues I’ve had to sort out since re-building my servers, here is what you have to do to tune to a DVB-T2 mux in MythTV (0.27 fixes).

This is the frequency for the PSB3 mux on Sandy Heath, I expect the encoding scheme will work pretty much where ever. At the very least it should get you started:


Frequency:  474200000
Bandwidth:  8 MHz
Inversion:  Auto
Constellation:  QAM 256
LP Coderate: 2/3
HO Coderate: Auto
Trans. Mode: 8K
Guard Interval: 1/32
Hierarchy:  None

If that doesn’t work, and you know it should (as in you are on the same transmitter) try setting the tuning timeouts higher. Also, just blindly re-trying because “WHY DOESN’T IT WORK” seemed to help.

And we’re back…

I’ve moved to another server, and in the process I’ve had a whole lot of problems.  For anyone that’s read any of my blog before that won’t come as a surprise.

Once I’ve got all the kinks worked out, I’ll tell you how I fixed it.  For now, this is just a test…
