Just to pop in here, while searching for something else,
I came upon a good how-to on all the steps needed to get
one particular service out of a DVB-H test multiplex --
specifically receiving FM4 from the DVB-H test in Wien
(Vienna Austria -- or was it Graz or somewhere else?),
which is no longer broadcasting as such -- under Linux-DVB.

You might find this useful, though I no longer remember what
language it was...
