    MediaPortal and the TV server both have a xml-file with tuningparameters for DVB-T. If the frequencies for your area are listed in this file a channel scan will take a lot less time (because the channel scan will only scan the listed frequencies) compared to scanning all frequencies for you whole country or even all possible DVB-T frequencies.



    All entries should look like the following schema (shortened):

    Code (Text):
    1. <country name="YOUR_COUNTRY - YOUR_CITY/REGION" offset="125">
    2.   <carrier frequency="198500" bandwidth="7" />
    3.   <carrier frequency="498000" bandwidth="8" />
    4.   <carrier frequency="530000" bandwidth="8" />
    5. </country>
    Just replace the YOUR_COUNTRY and YOUR_CITY/REGION values and enter the frequencies in the carrier element.

    You can get the DVB-T frequencies from your local provider. The sample data is from http://www.dvb-t-nord.de/empfangsgebiete/media/hannover_bs_parameter.pdf where you can see that 198,5Mhz results in frequency="198500" and so on.

    After completing the entry please test if all channels are found and you didn't miss a frequency.

    Please post your new or updated tuningdetails in the ::: correct forum here :::.

    Thanks

    Hi!

    This block should replace old ones (Croatia - Zagreb - Sljeme, ...):

    <country name="Croatia - Zagreb" offset="125">
    <carrier frequency="498000" bandwidth="8" />
    <carrier frequency="514000" bandwidth="8" />
    <carrier frequency="522000" bandwidth="8" />
    </country>

    Hi Maschine,

    you can delete country "Italy - Verona" offset="125", all freq are already coded in "Italy - All regions".
    Also take care that:

    <carrier frequency="742000" bandwidth="8" /> is not a valid freq (from Italy - Verona)

    and

    <carrier frequency="642000" bandwidth="8" /> should be <carrier frequency="643000" bandwidth="8" />

    and

    <carrier frequency="866000" bandwidth="8" /> is missing


    info taken from http://www.terratec.it/supporto/dvb4.shtml.

    Thank you.

    Simone
