I'm a rank amateur in this, so I'll freely admit that this config is 
just a first approximation to allow me to test the state of various dvb 
players. The standards used in dvb-t in Norway means that all software 
needs to bee at the bleeding edge, so a working first approximation to 
make testing easier is a boon (i.e. I'm hoping this file will end up on 
live-cd distros).

The only thing I ever see in the actual scan output is stuff like:

parse_terrestrial_delivery_system_descriptor:498: 0x3409/0x3a4 

Which I guess means that all the entries could be changed to 8MHz 2/3 
2/3 QAM64 8k 1/8 NONE. I have no contract or guarantee or even official 
documentation from any provider to corroborate this. I tried asking on a 
web "help forum" for the dvb-t distributor (norkring). The answer was 
"digital broadcasts in Norway are not viewable on a pc". (I'm watching 
NRK1 digital on a gentoo box right now). Any official info on the 
norkring website bears no resemblance to what actually works. There are 
some "channel numbers" listed for the various "packages", but what those 
numbers mean (i.e. frequency ) is not specified, and there are some 
transmitters that are not on the official list yet.
