    Basically symbolrate needs to be 6952 (not 6950) and QAM is 256. :) This should probably be updated by package maintainer or add a new file for Bærum. Not sure which :)

  • corvy , if you want you can post your initial scan file to the mailinglist linuxtv-commits@linuxtv.org.

    The dvbscan utility repo will be updated and you can use the new scan file for Canal Digital dvb-c, when your distro update the dvbscan tool.

    Look here: https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Dvbscan#Also_See


    Zitat

    If you choose to create an initial scan file (and you know the name of your local transmitter or cable provider), you can send the resulting file to the dvb mailing list after checking that it hasn't already been posted or added to the scan directory in the dvb-apps repository. NOTE: w_scan >= 20090504 needs additionally option -c <COUNTRY>

    In addition, w_scan can also generate a channels.conf file.
