I'm currently building a new backend, so I tried this out using the myth
internal scanner. Using Cable, Full Scan, QAM-256 on a Dvico Fusion
Lite 5 it got a bunch of "Lock", but "No tables". Only one channel came
up after the scan was completed: 110#1, which from my 10 seconds of
watching it is some sort of weird preview channel. Using the script
that's floating around in the wiki resulted in the following:
The "try" channels turned out to have nothing on them. When I imported
the above into my non-dev myth system I was able to correlate the XMLTV
IDs to the -SD channels through the mythweb channel editor.
Headend is Comcast, Chicago area. I have to get the new backend
operational this weekend, but I'm willing to do whatever testing is
necessary until then.

Also, not sure if you're doing anything UI related, but the window that
pops to the foreground that tells you lock status and S/N ratio obscures
the interesting stuff that's scrolling in the background. Maybe add a
status line on the foreground popup so you could see "No tables"? Also,
once the scan is done, there's no feedback about what you're supposed to
do - you're just presented with the status box. Pressing ESC is bad,
pressing ENTER is good.
I'll open a trac ticket if you'd like.
