Xawtv on gets 13 channels??

I have switched from Slackware to Mandrake 9.0, just getting the feel for different distro's. I HAD xawtv setup on my slackware system. Now when mandrake installed it, i only get the first 13 channels.

I have run scantv, and it finds all 100. But how do i make xawtv recognize them? I still only get the first 13 after running scantv.

Any idears? This seems kinda odd....

Channel list is probably 'broadcast' when it should be 'cable' ie: ntsc-cable-us. Have a look in your ~/.xawtv to see how the configuration file is setup. You can also change it in the options dialog. 'man xawtv' for more startup options.
