Of course directv does not allow channel scans. You just enter a primary and secondary zip codes (if you have one), and it downloads the local channels it has for your area. I did this tonight and it gave just 5-1 (not even 5-2, which is usually there. For 45, it gave me 45-1 and 45-2, as always. Maybe they're waiting for things to shake out, but I'm not holding my breath.
Also, for digital 23, it's always given me the CW feed on 23-1, and music videos on 23-2. I thought I heard that there was to be another music channel on 23-3. Is this true?
It also doesn't show the low power religious stations.
My wife still likes the tivo, maybe I'll play around with it's scanning feature tomorrow.
