I have only 10 channels in the list, of which 2 working FTA's. Deleted
the card, deleted all channels, re-imported channels (I have only tried
the built in channel scanner once, and its not working very well). I
created the channels.conf with "scan -a 0" , but tried all options.
I'm not really persuing the phoenix interface route, as I dont like it
very much (and I just bought the CI interface and the CAM)
but there could be an incompatibility between my ZCAS CAM and Mythtv.
Wonder if I could give the CAM more time to settle after a channel
change.. I've already maxed out the tuning timers in the DVB capture
