However, if I select "Scan for channels", it shows all of the channels I would expect to find, and none that I wouldn't, so possibly it is finding the channels?

This is not an instantaneous happening. "Fetch channels from listings
source" can take quite a while (a minute or more in some cases for me).

I've also had to try more than once to get fetch channels to work, don't
know why, or if it's on my end or not, I just tried again and it worked.

This was just as SD was starting up, so I chalked it up (probably
incorrectly) to heavy traffic.
