If you're living in Switzerland and you want to configure your TVHeadend settings to scan the Swiss TV proviers Cablecom or Thurcom (region of Wil SG), then you're right here.

It took me some time to finally find the correct mutex settings, but here they are.

Network:

TVHeadend Network Settings Thurcom

Note: According to the Thurcom website, the network ID should be set to 360 if no smartcard is attached.

(First) Mutex:

TVHeadend Mutex Mux Thurcom Cablecom

Note: The above mentioned hint tells you to use the frequency 314kHz. In my case this didn't work. I was much more successful with 826kHz and I left the symbol rate at 0.

Then I forced the scan on the network and it got me all the scan results and channels:

Attention if you come across errors like these (scan no data, failed):

This is probably due to a defect antenna cable. I hit the problem myself with a several meters long antenna cable still rolled up. Once I switched to a shorter and stretched cable, the errors disappeared.
