I think that's the point. The right solution for dvb-t is really
autoscan (in that case you can "smoke" at least 300kb scan files). I
will add the BW scan file if you really want, but I don't want to
_encourage_ people spending too much time on scan files. There are
cases where a xx-all is ok (because it can be easily generated by some
c&p + filtering from offical infos and the result isn't the union of
all possible combinations), but spending a lot of effort on creating
such combined files isn't justified imho.
