Of course it's called w_scan, not wscan, sorry.

Suggestion: how about setting -t 3 (long tuning timeout) and -O 1 (search other services)
as the *default* options to give the program the best chance of finding all channels without
having to play with the options? They do make a difference.

Release early, release often.
