It is stored in the database, and is not overwritten by 
mythfilldatabase. You can't see the change until you change channels and 
back again. It would be  nice if this were interactive like the color 
controls. Some cable providers skew the channels, I'm guessing to reduce 
interefence problems.

If you have a lot of stations with poor reception, you may have picked 
the wrong frequency standard, or a have a weak signal(s) or bad connections
