Hi Jens,

I seem to be missing the option to scan an individual transponder.
Presumably this is *only* available after a full scan is performed?

As per my original problem, I don't see the need to perform a full scan
for a lot of channels, when I only want a handful and can readily supply
the transponder information.

It would be great if Myth had the ability to ignore the NIT data (via
toggle) so that we don't have to endure lengthy scans when it's just not
