Well, just have to send this message again, this time to the right & 
correct mailing list linux-dvb at linuxtv.org. (Who by the way had the 
insane idea, to set a reply-to address to another mailing list 
(linux-media at vger.kernel.org)? I've never seen such behavior in other 
lists. It's a damn useless and confusing thing.)

Moin, moin (as people say in Northern Germany) :)

As for certain area in Saxony-Anhalt, Saxony and Thuringia there ahve
never been VHF channels in use. Tis applies normally only to area from
the first stage of the German DVB-T project.

Lower Saxony has recently (November 2008) cleared several channels, like
in my area (Brunswick), where there had been an ARD Mux on Ch 8. Now  it
  is on Ch 47.

Information for the whole NDR area will normally be found at

There is a complete listing including parameters from "in area" and also
"out of area" (but with reception in the area) transmitters at


So have a look ;)
