Bummer on the inability to selectivly delete .x channels. In my case I have several minor channels that I dont care to have in my scan list, but I do like one of the minors. I have never seen a digital device not be able to selectivly do this, but then again I havent seen everything out there either.
The Philips' primary function is as a recorder. The tuner is just an afterthought in these things - and in all of these 1st generation recorders - that's painfully obvious. They only begrudgingly put them in there as it is.
