Hi Mario,
 
I've never run into the problem you're pointing out, but I believe the website has a more options selection also.  The best way to find out is to experiment by running a scan to see what results you come up with.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
I believe that everything happens for a reason. Usually, the reason is that somebody screwed up.
