Freecom DVB-T card tuning, Re: [linux-dvb] Trouble with Pinnacle 310i DVB-T

This is exactly it! If you add 167k to 489833333 you get basically
490000000 which is the frequency that works with this card! [See my
mail, subject "Tuning problems: Freecom card with USB ID 14aa:0226" on
10/10/06 17:19 (it has USB ID 14aa:0225 when cold)]

So how would I go about doing this manually? Because when I scan, the
frequencies of the other transponders are not accepted... Could it not
be added in the driver? Automatically add 167k to every frequency
received if a certain modprobe flag is on? I want it to work with my
current MythTV setup, which has 2 DVB-T devices already, I don't want to
have to add more transponders and get MythTV confused over which
channels are the same or different...

Any ideas?
