Ok, I've added to gr-atsc cvs these files:

atsc_fs_checker  (field sync checker)

which will compile, load into python and run in a flow graph
but have NOT been tested or debugged. atsc_field_sync_mux
appears to work as far as I can tell by writing to a file
and examining the hexdump (there's a field sync inserted after
every 312 data segments, with valid segment sync, pn511, pn63,
inverted pn63 on FIELD2, another pn63,  vsb mode info, 92 symbols
from pn63 and even the last 12 symbols from the previous segment,
all look ok, except there's junk in the pad space).

It would seem the next test phase would be to loopback
atsc_field_sync_mux to atsc_field_sync_demux BUT mux does not
output a syminfo stream that demux requires so not sure how to
proceed there.  Nothing else seems a logical loopback point as
the only thing left in the transmitter is a symbol mapper then
modulator and filter.

At this point we NEED:

GrFIRfilterFFF            float                        float     band
pass root raised cosine centered at IF freq (matched filter)
GrAtscFPLL                float                        float     carrier
tracking freq and phase lock loop with down converting mixer
GrFIRfilterFFF            float                        float     low
pass to kill unwanted mixer image
GrRemoveDcFFF             float                        float     remove
DC offset prior to symbol timing module

HAVE but not debugged:
atsc_bit_timing_loop      float                        float,syminfo
track symbol & segment timing and do fractional interpolation
atsc_fs_checker           float,syminfo                float,syminfo
look for field sync patterns
atsc_equalizer            float,syminfo                float,syminfo
LMS equalizer
atsc_field_sync_demux     float,syminfo
atsc_soft_data_segment     remove field syncs and pack into data

HAVE WORKING and tested:
atsc_viterbi_decoder      atsc_soft_data_segment
atsc_mpeg_packet_rs_encoded  Viterbi decoder (12 seg delay)
atsc_deinterleaver        atsc_mpeg_packet_rs_encoded
atsc_mpeg_packet_rs_encoded  convolutional de-interleaver (52 seg delay)
atsc_rs_decoder           atsc_mpeg_packet_rs_encoded
atsc_mpeg_packet_no_sync     Reed-Solomon decoder
atsc_derandomizer         atsc_mpeg_packet_no_sync     atsc_mpeg_packet
de-whiten with LFSR
