There was a message about frequency out of bounds with my setup (HVR4k
w/european universal LNB). It might just need some tweaking to the LNB
setup, or that the default settings for a universal LNB can't be used
for this tuner. I'll get back with details next time I try a fresh scan.

True, but there's still tens FTA-channels broadcasting in languages I
don't understand. There are 20+ languages present on 0.8w. Only 5-6 are
of much use to me.

I'll have to return with further details after next scan, but my last
scan/cleanup with a fresh trunk build (last week) only returned icons
for a handful of channels.
