Given that this is working fine for a number of people it's more likely
a Cox related problem. You should try running:
scan -A2 US-Cable_Center-Frequencies (google the exact center
frequencies filename or look in /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/something....)
at the scanning files.
Also try the IRC/HRC equivalent frequency tables.
If you're lucky 'scan' will generate a new channels.conf for you, and
the world will be a happy shiny Digital Cable loving place.
