#1196 closed defect (invalid)

Inconsistent ATSC separator characters

This is a tracking ticket.

scanwizardhelpers.h defines ScanATSCChannelFormat as underscore, minus, period, zero and none.

videosource.cpp QString SourceUtil::GetChannelSeparator?(uint sourceid) has a different idea, and adds "#" to the mix.

Once .19 comes out these should be reconciled.

The "#" separator is used by the scanner when it doesn't find an ATSC or a DVB channel, but does find a channel in the PAT. These turn up when you do a QAM scan with most cable providers. These are intended to be ranamed to match your cable provider's number assignments, and we intentionally don't use any of the ATSC separators so that these unnamed channels don't conflict with ATSC channels.

Because of Daniel's explanation, this sounds like a "don't fix it cause it ain't broke", so I'm closing this as invalid since the # has special meaning which Robert and I did not know about when we discussed this before he opened the ticket.
