I wrote that from memory.  It was actually 290 services on 18
frequencies for QAM64 and 25 services on 10 frequencies for QAM64.

Correct.

For QAM64, the video pids were always 0.  The ausio pids generally
ranged from 1 to e with an occasional fffc.  The results were the same
for QAM256, except 7 video pids were non-0.  I can't say for sure if I
actually tried to tune the non-0 QAM256 channels.  I was already
running late by the time I tried QAM256 that I didn't try much.

No, I could get FR_HAS_LOCK.  However, the signal was always 0000 and
any attempts to actually capture anything resulted in a TS stream
where mplayer couldn't find any video.

I am a little curious about the non-0 video pid services on QAM256.
It seems odd that of ~315 services, all have vidoe pid 0 except for 7.
This is just a WAG, but I'm wondering if the QAM256 services aren't
the local channels with the non-0 video pids being the extra streams
that some stations broadcast.  The total number of services would be
about right for this area.
