You're completely correct. Thanks for pointing me in the right
direction. It seems that i had 800+ channels with the 'useonairguide'
set to 1, so the scanner was constantly scanning the 100's of
transponders and never infact getting to the channels which i was
interested in with the 'visible' flag set to 1.
The answer for me was to just do
mysql -e 'update channel set useonairguide=0 where visible != 1'
Of course you/i also need to set the useonairguide to 1 for channels
that are just the guide channels that are generally invisible but there
to transmit the whole EIT data.
