Ok, got its sorted.
When you install the ivtv driver you will get a utility called ptune.pl
You can set frequencies with that.
This page may come in useful for people trying out any Linux based TV stuff:
What I notice is this:
There is a tveeprom driver. When you modprobe tveeprom it reports the
on the device. In this case it reports FM1245.
The closest match to this in the list of tuner types is:
type=1 - Philips PAL_I (FI1246 and compatibles)
So type equals one is the correct argument to send in /etc/modules.conf
The line looks like this:
options tuner type=1 pal=1
Nobody seems too certain is the pal=1 does anything in this case.
So once you have the tuner set correctly and pal set you can start to tune.
There is only one problem, the frequency ranges for NTL are not within
the PAL-I range.
But if you use ptune-ui.pl one of the menus has a list of 'a' channels,
which I think are for when
you are connected to an antenna, you get your tv. So you could be right
about the VHF/UHF
Once I figure everything out I can write up something explaining all the
options for Ireland.
