Nick,Southsea.Look up inversion effect,that could be the cause of the interference you implied that yer experiencing.

Ewan Marshall: Yes, you are quite correct as far as 100% accuracy is concerned as the + offset has been mistakenly marked against the wrong multiplex, although as far as a TV's or box tuning is concerned this minor clerical error is neither here nor there, as the devices tuners automatic frequency control (AFC) will lock onto the signal anyway.

Accept I have receiving gear where I input the transponder frequency manually (ham radio operator), so having the correct transponder frequencies is extremely useful. So when I tune to frequency and can't get a stable signal lock I shouldn't have to be calculating and trying offsets manually.
And not all consumer tuners will manage to correct for an offset correctly (hauppage wintv cards don't, the scanner scans them all separately in wintv windows media center trying both offsets as we as the channel frequency reported for that transmitter, if you aren't using that software though, or manually inputting the transponder tables to scan on then one again needs to know the correct offset.
