    Channel Scan

    When the system is turned on the very first time it does a channel scan. All ATSC 1.0 and ATSC 3.0 channels found are added to the channel map. You can also do additive channel scans after repositioning your antenna. This adds any new channels found without erasing the existing channel map.
