Just an FYI for anyone following this thread. Nick, the Silicon Dust
developer, posted a patch on ticket #3942 a couple days ago. It appears
that the signal strength calculation in older revisions of the firmware
was buggy. The latest firmware fixes this, and Nick's MythTV patch,
which I'll review shortly adjusts the new signal strength threshold.
So if you are using the latest firmware, MythTV won't see the channels
as having a strong signal until the patch is applied.

This probably explains why people with old HDHomeRun tuners can scan but
people with newer tuners are having difficulties.
