Though for some reason, I find it more reliable to scan each transport individually - doing a "delete all channels, scan existing transports" seems to miss some channels on my hardware (HVR1300 IIRC).
Fair enough, but some of the transmission parameters you have to provide to
create a transport from scratch can be less than obvious. Why do that when you
already have at least one in the table that you know works?
