According to here: http://www.ofcom.org.uk/s….pdf
Mux1 should be C34+ (578.2MHz) and MuxC should be C37 (602.0 MHz)

This I've confirmed here.

Rowridge (Isle Of Wight, England) transmitter

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.
