In my experience with both mythTV and Kaffeine I have not been able to
get my Pinnacle USB stick thing to "auto tune" and of course selecting
the Black Mountain stations is not much chop given that I am in
Kambah. So for me this is what I made as my initial scan file:

# Australia / Canberra / Weston
# T freq bw fec_hi fec_lo mod transmission-mode guard-interval hierarchy
T 746500000 7MHz 3/4 3/4 QAM64 8k 1/16 NONE
# Seven
T 177500000 7MHz 2/3 NONE QAM64 8k 1/8 NONE
# Nine
T 788500000 7MHz 3/4 NONE QAM64 8k 1/16 NONE
# Ten
T 767500000 7MHz 3/4 1/2 QAM64 8k 1/16 NONE
T 543500000 7MHz 2/3 NONE QAM64 8k 1/8 NONE

FWIW: I haven't been able to get Seven to tune but I am only using the
little desktop whip aerial that came with it.

This then turns into this:
