The device *is* and configured as a DVB. The channel scan is being done on ATSC channels (and it is finding the locals channels because the station IDs are what I expect them to be) The snow was caused by having the analog tuner and digital assigned in MythTV. Once I removed the analog now all I get is a blank screen on watch TV. I verified that the scan is being done on terrestrial vsb-8 .
Devin mentioned that my channel frequencies looked to be a cable format but I know for sure that my settings on page are for OTA Digital TV.
So, again, what else can I look at to debug this?
