I suggest that you use the scan program included in dvb-apps cvs.
There is a modified version of it, called "atscscan" and there are some
frequency listings in the atsc/ directory.
You can check the list archives for detailed instructions on how to use
it, but if necessary, let me know and I'll give specifics.
P.S.: Thank you for forwarding my cvs instructions to the mythtv-users
list... This applies to ALL v4l / dvb cards now... Soon enough, ivtv
will be included in the build as well.
Hope this helps,
