The last time I tried an ATSC scan with my A180's was right after the
initial check in of the new scanning code before you and Daniel, etc.
started checking in bug fixes. I had done it to see how well it
worked, I didn't need to do it to add channels and Comcast only
recently started including the channel names with their PMT data (or
wherever its kept, i forget...). It ran flawlessly for me this last
go-round, and thankfully I chose the right frequency table =)
