Thanks Knight, found it
Seems pretty silly for developers to hard code frequencies
in to source. I see they haven't even gotten rid of ch 52-69 yet (I know, Canada still uses them),
let alone 70-83 for "US-broadcast" which haven't even been used for
television in what, 20 years?

There's so many different tuner chipsets out there..
I don't see how they can accomodate 'em all that way.
Did send an email to one of the developers of that driver though,
with details of the issue I found.

PS- I think what I'll do is add another list to frequencies.c with what
works for me, give it a new name, and re-compile. Rather than modify
theirs. Never know, someday I might have a diff tuner.
