HDHomerun UK - does not find channels during scan

I've just tried setting this up on SageTV in the UK. I have run HDHomeRun setup, and it detects the dual tuners and scans and finds the channels. I have set it to Digital Antenna and SageTV as the application. Status is "OK" I can view freeview channels through HDHomerunSetup.

In SageTV, I add a new source, and can select the tuners. However, when I do a channel scan then sage scans up to 100 but does not find any channels. I am in the UK, so do not have a guide.

Do I need to manually add each channel, and if so how?

Does the "digital antenna" setting in the UK cause it to scan to 100? In the US, it only scans 2-69 (the OTA digital TV frequency range). Just curious... if UK operates in the same range, perhaps the fact it is scanning to 100 could be an indicator of where the problem is.

Sorry I can't help much beyond that... don't know much about UK TV (except my wife watching all the British sitcoms!)

I'm guessing this is the DVB-T version? I haven't dealt with its setup for anything other than the one for the US & Canada. But... did the scan in SageTV take a long time or did it scan quickly? If it took a long time, then it didn't see the .scn file that the HDHR software creates. (I'll need to find out if DVB-T setup is different for the HDHR... or even supported yet.)

It scanned quickly - about 15 seconds. Yes, it is the new DVB-T only just released this week in the UK.
