Thanks for the reply - and the reworking.  I had a feeling the sorting 
might be more complicated;  since everything is present, and the initial 
list *is* sorted, there's no real problem.

I have a229c27 running with DVB-T and DVB-T/T2 systems, and rescanned 
this morning.  Channels marked as 'possible' were dropped but reinserted 
after another single-transport scan marked them as 'probable,' and all 
seems good.  I didn't have to respond to any new features.  The 
transports that sometimes give trouble are transmitted at lower power, 
and wet trees are another variable factor.

Recently I have skipped the setup steps other than the channel scans, 
because it looked as if nothing there had changed and a lot of time 
seems to be spent looking for features that I know I don't have;  there 
was another recent post asking about that, and some TLC there would be 
good - but with my fairly basic systems the overall experience  has been 
greatly improved.


For completeness I should add another comment.   I have just updated my 
kubuntu 18.04 laptop on which the last recording was made in late April. 
  It's also running today's master, a229c27 from the PPA, and with the 
same USB MyGica DVB-T/T2 tuner.  On the first attempts to update the 
channel list, using 'all known transports,' some transports locked but 
gave no channels.  I saved and quit and rescanned several times before 
all the transports reported 'probable' channels.  It's OK now.
