I'm in Southern California, so I cannot "scan" real DVB-T transmitters.
I have a test generator that needs to be configured correctly for
frequency, modulation, ... that I can then "scan" to see if the system
finds it.  Initially, though, I want to set up a channels.conf[.ter]
with known good values, start mplayer on one/some of those channels, and
be sure that I can configure the test generator to match.

I've done this with analog PAL for several countries with a different
generator, then used "scantv" to be sure that I can find the one it is
