MythTV - Frequency converter

MythTV Frequency 2 channel converter

Channellist

Frequency (Hz)

MythTV Values for:
Freqid = E11
Finetune = -20

Manually configuring channels for MythTv can take up some time, especially if you start trying with a VHF channel and you don't know about VHF or UHF channels.
At a certain point I figured out that I could easily add UHF channels mannualy in MythTV, but not the VHF channels. Finding the right documentation about what to fill in for VHF channels has taken some time. Searching and trying resulted in finding http://www.mythwiki.de/index.php/HOWTO_Mythfilldatabase. The page explained that I could use the channel definitions of the Perl module Frequencies.pm and how to calculate the finetune value.

This converter is created to help you convert a frequency into a MythTV 'compliant' "freqid" and "finetune" value. Hopefully you find it useful.
Bugs, requests etc. can be mailed to djDOTescayATgmailDOTcom.

Looking for 216000 Hz in the PAL_EUROPE Channellist resulted in

MythTV freqid = E11 (217250 Hz)
MythTV finetune = -20 (((216000 - 217250) * 16) / 1000)
