Howdy all,

While it was pretty recently that analog channel scanning was fixed after
being disabled/broken for quite some time, this occured in svn trunk before
the 0.23 branch and release, so it should technically be working in 10.04
and certainly Lucid auto-builds.  Figuring out _how_ to make it do what you
want to do is something that some people have struggled with.

The Digital channel scanning re-write was included in the 0.22 release
(hence the breaking of analog scanning).

Having said all that (and to summarize what Nick said) if a cable box is
being used, channel scanning should not be used at all.  The cable box
outputs on only one channel (typically 3 or 4), as well as composite,
component, and/or s-video.  Instead of channel scanning, you obtain your
channel lineup from Schedules Direct (I think a free trial membership is
available so that you can verify everything is working before subscribing
for the token $20/year).

Have fun,
