None of them will even show you the sub channel.

But I don't think explicitly specifying the frequency ID and sub channel is what you want anyway. I let the channel scan find
the frequency IDs and sub channels, then edit the channel number so I can tune the channel using a printed TV schedule (like TV

In order to do this, I must dump the database to get the mapping between existing channel number and frequency ID / sub channel.
Use scte65scan to get the cable companies idea of the mapping between call sign and frequency ID/ sub channel, and  their
virtual channel, but the results of this are ambiguous and incomplete, so I still need to sit on a few channels to try and
figure out what they are.
Takes a long time to get it right.
