Just putting this back on list since it might help others, too.
The syntax is
scan <channel file> > <output file>
So I would say
scan us-ATSC-center-frequencies-8VSB > channels.conf
the file us-ATSC-center-frequencies-8VSB should have come with your
dvb-apps package; look for it in /usr/share
Check the dvb wiki for info on how to use scan also:
and for dvb-apps in general.
