Hi!

That didn't work at all
scanning ./dvb-s/Thor-1.0W
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
initial transponder 11247000 V 24500000 24500000
initial transponder 11293000 H 24500000 24500000
initial transponder 11325000 H 24500000 24500000
initial transponder 12054000 H 28000000 28000000
initial transponder 12169000 H 28000000 28000000
initial transponder 12226000 V 28000000 28000000

Done.

I have now tried the latest scan from dvb-apps-cvs but that only outputs 
DVB-S channels, I have also patched that scan with this patch
http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2007-December/022520.html
But running scan with -vv didn't show me anything intresting, I did also 
a initial scan file with only the DVB-S2 transponders (info from 
lyngsat) but then I only got tuning failed.

Anyone ;-)
