Version: 1:0.2.8-1
Severity: grave
Tags: upstream
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

The "digital switch over" (DSO) -- closing of analogue television transmision -- has involved quite a convoluted
rearrangement of the multiplexes and channels.  The DSO completed for London, and in my case Crystal Palace,
2012-04-18.  The channel data distributed with dvb-apps is now incorrect, but that is a separate
bug report.  I calculated the relevant data from the OfCom documents and can see all the SD channels at the
calculated frequencies using vlc.  I created a variant of the /usr/share/dvb/dvb-t/uk-CrystalPalace datafile, but using
this, gnome-dvb-setup failed to find any channels when scanning.
