Hey Pete - No - nothing. It does not find the channels - if you didnt know
they existed, you still wouldnt after scanning.
It is not signal or antenna. Other tuners have worked fine on the same
antenna, as does the TV.
All channels 'cept SBS and 9 are fine. SBS and 9 are not found unless I use
the tzap or transport methods mentioned previously.

> Dunno what a +125kHz offset is, but I have manually created transports for
these two channels using :-
LD Code: None
HD Code: 2/3
Trans Mode: 8k
Channel 9 (go gem and 9)
LP Coderate 3/4
HP Coderate 3/4
..rescanning with these transports finds and creates the missing channels,
but they dont work at all unless
I enable quick tuning - if I do that, I can watch them using live TV - but
still get no EIT EPG - so no scheduling at this time.
