Even people who go through the setup can get stuck here later, since 
the "starting channel" gets reset to the last channel tuned (or 
attempted to tune).  If you tune to a weak ATSC signal, crash, and 
then restart, you have to know to re-run setup or to run dtvsignal 
separately from the command line to restart on a working channel.  I 
know this caused me lots of frustration as I was starting up.  Would 
it be possible to add an option not to reset the starting channel?
