What changed? If it's not a hardware problem, then something must have
changed. Kernel upgraded, USB cable intermittent, firmware file removed
or renamed, antenna blown off roof, etc...

I'm suspicious about when you say "didn't ever scan properly". Mine
didn't scan either. Then I connected it to a proper antenna, and it
scanned fine.

Have you tried tzap? Please post output from tzap and also the kernel
log messages generated using debug=1 and while tzap is running.

Mine are still working - at least they were the last time we watched TV
which must have been a few weeks ago :-)
