Is there an "easy" way to decide which channels will work?.. (besides
manually changing to each channel and run a test)

Also... is this a limitation of..
A) The DCT-6200
B) linux1394 drivers
C) MythTV FireWire support
I'm just trying to figure out who I should speaking with to try to
help improve its usability.
