Afaik, No one has defined a VDR-format for ATSC-channels yet. Probably
because no one in an ATSC-country wants to use VDR (or is unable to add
ATSC-stuff and support to VDR).
If you want to implement it, try the following:
Get the latest vdr-version from here (currently 1.3.25):
Understand the channels.conf-formats currently existing for DVB-S/C/T.
Adapt a format to be appropriate for ATSC channels. (IMHO, a good start
would be to think about the PSIP-VCT-attributes, besides basic tuning
information.) Create a patch to current scan to be able to put out
Hmm, it's even better to contact the vdr-mailing-list first about that.
Maybe someone already thought about it (http://www.linuxtv.org/lists.php).
