Many of the networks that are on those birds don't send a NIT Table (Network
Information Table) since their "network" consists of 1 transponder.. Some send
garbage (try to scan the CCTV feeds at 95W and look at the Transport it will
add its quite entertaining).. This verson of the code won't add a transport
based on your current tuning settings (I will be adding this at some point). 
The way the scan is setup right now the full scan won't work unless you get a
NIT table that has valid data..

One alternative is to go into the Videosource Screen and manually add the
transponders to that videosource.. The menus are bit quirky right now for
transport editing, but you should be able to do what you need..

Then you can try the scan again except this time use "Transport Scan" and
specify the transport you just added..

I will have to move my dish over to some other FTA signals and see how it goes..
I have been messing with AMC3 mostly (The ATSC PBS Feeds), and I wasn't think
about it when I put out the patch, but I had to manually put the transports
into the DB before the scans would work for those channels..

It looks like all they are sending is the Network Name, but no Transports here
(see my above reply)

I was from time to time getting this error when I was testing PatchV1 before i
put it out.. I was hopeing it was a remote X over ssh over wifi timing issue,
but apparently its not.. (Anyone else have any clue as to how to look deeper
into this?).  I am positive its related to the signal meters in the scan dialog
but its been difficult to reproduce for me..

Can you send me a backtrace of setup if you can get the async reply to happen

Yeah when the signal meters froze it was because of that async message, and then
its unable to delete the objects and hangs waiting for the objects to delete..
