Tks for the work guys. Another problem with  current "browsing" is dupe 
channum's within a source. While scanning Intelsat Americas 5 (97 W) 
you might have 3 stations with "1" as the channum. This causes browsing 
to lock to only these stations.

Going the the channel editor and adding a prefix number 10001,20001 will 
fix it but maybe the scanner could have a channel prefix fix-up table 
for dupes as a option for some sources.
