If FastScanGUI has been used to limit the scan, this will be remembered until a factory reset (or 2) has been performed. A factory reset will not affect recordings, but timers will need to be renewed if not using MyStuff.

The MyInfo log looks ok.

You can create a forum signature by selecting/copying the last 4 lines in the above post (starting at TF5800). and then clicking on the link directly above the text you have just copied.

You probably have not installed the TvTxData.tsv file in /ProgramFiles/Settings - wit that Hannington should be listed (along with 30+ others).

Except that the FastScanGUI TAP was a successor to the FastScan TAP, both of which deliberately and explicitly change something (I don't recall the technical details) to restrict subsequent native scans to the same channels that you chose when you did a restricted one using the TAP.

IIRC, to "fix" this, you have to Factory reset, reboot and Factory reset again. Or something like that.

Channel Organiser & TopManager do much the same thing, but reset the search parameters afterwards so only a single Factory Reset is needed to sort things out if you want to do a manual scan afterwards. Unfortunately the need for those Factory Resets rather nullifies the point of those single channel scan afterwards!

Channel Organiser and TopManager should also sort out the FastScan(Gui) legacy settings without needing a manual Factory Reset, which of course affects various settings other than the channels, which can be a pain.
