MythTV UK Freesat frequencies

Another post that is as much for my own note taking as anything else but, on the chance that somebody might find it useful, I decided WordPress would be better than Evernote.

When setting up MythTV I have previously followed the excellent UK-centric guides provided by Garry Parker at When it came to setting up the channels for Freesat I found his guide at┬áno longer worked for me in one small respect – the channel scanning. I did some digging around for Freesat frequencies and here are what I found that work for me on the Wirral.

Frequency Polarity Symbol Rate FEC
10773250 Horizontal 22000000 5/6
10802750 Horizontal 22000000 5/6
10788000 Vertical 22000000 5/6
10817500 Vertical 22000000 5/6

I scanned with all four of these settings, leaving everything else at default and I now have a full set of satellite channels
