Ok, thanks.  Totally misunderstood the button label and help text - I
interpreted it as two different ways to get the list of channels...
The help text says "This uses the listings data source to provide the
channels for this input..."
Thanks again.

Pulls tv listings data for your configured channel lineup.

Scan first for digital sources. Don't scan for analog sources (or any
source that is fed from a set top box).
