I noticed the same thing with my ATI TV Wonder.

I've found better results with tuner=2

Lemme guess you are in Canada right and using canada-cable as your channel 
selection?  The only way I found around that is to use usa-cable and then 
fine tune the channels that aren't coming in correctly or at all.

Another fellow I know up in Abbotsford (Fraser Valley, British Columbia) has 
to use fine=-7 with this setup.

Actually looking at your isp, is looks like you are in the USA, I suspect 
that if you try tuner=2, your missing channel might clear up....
