    Mediaportal should scan for channels on first install if user chooses to install TV-Server/Client - This will make installation more user friendly and intuitive.

    Installation/TV Setup

    Mediaportal installer asks for installation of TV-server - If user chooses Yes, next install page should show:

    4-way toogle option
    Easy: Dropdown menu with pre-defined Cable/Satelite/Terrestial providers+ Generic scans
    Medium: 4 x fields: Frequency, Network ID(?), Modulation & Symbol Rate
    Advanced: Import-button for .xml based (primarily used by existing MePo users)
    Skip action - Choose later/Manual installation

    Futuristic Alternative - But properly light years from current development/functionality :-S
    Fully automatic scan based on combination of internet based Country,MePo provider database, ISP, Card type
    1-button solution=Scan!

    Yes and not only channels scan but also setting shares, plugins, skin etc. (Mediaportal Wizard)
    To do scan we need to have such interface in TV Server. Probably no chance to have it in TVE3 so we're awaiting TVE3.5
