I am glad to heard that (well some of it at least)..

The completion of the scan isn't very obvious right now.. if it shoots over to
somewhere around 70% its done..

Most of those are not really important (as far as crashes are concerned just
crufty code that hasn't be properly cleaned up yet)..  The FE_ATSC stuff
depends on your dvb drivers.. The other warnings im working on cleaning up, but
they shouldn't cause any issues..

It looks like a simple fix.. I am always joning the DVBStats thread, but unless
its started it won't exist, so blammo..

I think John and I will put a patch out in a few days to this weekend that fixes
these issues..
