I don't have any other way to test the LNBf, dish or card.  However, they are all brand new.
 
Dvbscan does not have any -l settings that match my LNBf at all so I can't really run dvbscan at all.  However, if I do run it without any options, all I get is the following:
 
guu-sama scan # ./dvbscan -A 3 -vvv dvb-s/USA/Intelsat5 > /home/banana/.szap/channels.conf
scanning dvb-s/USA/Intelsat5
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'

I haven't tried running dvbscan without the dish plugged in to see if it still gives the same output.  Would you like me to?
