Hi Kurt

happy to see that I'm not the only one to struggle here!

I linked your request to mine here: http://hub.qgis.org/issues/14845

Are you on the dev list as well? If yes, you can link up to my last
message. The more we are to express this need, the higher the likelihood
that it can get implemented at some point :-)

I don't really work with raster attribute tables but I guess what you
described below could fit in the same implementation. Click on "retrieve
all unique values" can retrieve either from the attribute table or from the
actual  pixel values of a geoTiff.

Cheers

Stéphane
