Channel scanner stops scanning after finding (C)VCT

ATSC/DVB Issue -

There are some stations here with incomplete Virtual Channel Tables; these tables only list some of the channels on the transport; MythTV stops scanning once it finds a VCT, ignoring the extra programs in the transport.

The channel works if manually added to the database (serviceid=<program>, atsc_major_chan=0, atsc_minor_chan=0)

This is really a feature request since you are asking for something non-standard to be supported, but I'll keep the ticket open and look at this the next time I'm working on the channel scanner.

(In [11702]) Refs #1866. Refs #2600. Replaces DVBTuning with DTVMultiplex which does not depend on DVB headers and uses the same string parsing routines as the dvb-utils channels.conf reader.

This DTVMultiplex is then used for DTVChannel::Tune() so that the different DTV channels classes no longer require custom tuning code in the channel scanner. This also gets rid of the Linux DVB header dependency in frequencytables.{h,cpp} which simplifies that code as well.

This has been tested with DVB ATSC 8-VSB/QAM-256, DVB-T, DVB-C, ivtv (which uses a DTV capable tuning class), and the HDHomeRun 8-VSB/QAM-256.
