Advanced Channel Scan options

In addition to the current form of channel scan, please add additional “Advanced Opinions”.

  1. Add scan/update streaming channels only option.

  2. Add option to scan for channels WITHOUT removing already added channels.

  3. Add ability to scan a specific range of channels. Advanced users that understand RF channel vs Virtual channel, could enter RF channel to scan.

  4. Add ability to manually add a channel by RF frequency.

To cut down on support calls, these options could be on an “Advanced Opinions” screen with a warning that the support center will not assist with advanced settings.

This would definitely help with users that rely on iffy stations that only come in at certain times of the day.

While setting up my new Gen 4, 4 tuner, channel scan managed to pull in channel 9 from Windsor Canada, from its tower 46 miles away, but did not find 11 from Toledo, a tower 8 miles away. Of course on a rescan it found 11 and not 9. :roll_eyes:

LOL. Sorry… That sucks.

I don’t have this issue, but I’ve got a channel that’s nearby, comes in with the weakest antenna, but I never know if it’s going to be online, have subchannels, or if it’ll be the same actual station. Each time I run a scan, surprises await! (It’s likely why Tablo & what’s now BUZZR can’t get it together and give me a guide.) But it would be great to be able to keep it stored so I don’t have to schedule a time with my Tablo to do a channel scan.
