The polarization looks ok in the DB, somehow its getting fubared between the DB
and the code.. Can you go into the transport editor (under videosource) and see
that its set to "Horizontal" there?  This is the weirdest error ive seen yet,
because everything looks ok..

http://www.satcodx2.com/0192/usa/ - If you look at transport 103 it clearly
exists with those parameters, so it DOES exist in the NIT table.. The 12ghz
frequency isn't odd, many of the channels I get get here are 12ghz..

Obviously i need to just strip these out, since they are some sort of emphasis
that isn't going to do any good in Myth..

Look at mythtv.org for debug compile options, and follow that.. Pretty simple.
Just edit the settings.pro, set debug on, dist-clean and make...
