1. I see similar behaviour, which I think is "on demand" programming.  I 
sometimes can see menu's
that look like they are actively being clicked to select progams. I 
haven't yet found any stable in the clear programming,  but I think it 
will only take time on my part.

2. A question:  whenever atscscan  actually discovers a signal I get the 
message "filter timeout".  Is this
an mpeg2 filter that is crashing when it tries to process the incoming 
signal?

3.  Another question:  for the few channels I have successfully 
"azap-ped" so far, the captured .mpg or .TS
will crash mplayer after a short time (10 seconds of video)...same thing 
if I cat /dvr0 into mplayer. any ideas what is going on here?

p.s. sorry for the bad  html post, using a pc at work different setup.
