Which is why we have those different tables :) There are too many variations
in  the parameters, the main culprits being Bandwidth and Inversion. The UK
scan is already quite slow at the moment as is, (I actually prefer to do the
tuned version, just to get the channels set up quickly). Maybe we could
speed it up in the future, but I wouldn't count on it.

A "catch all" table might be an idea, possibly taking in the UK, Australian
and German variations, (probably very slow though).
