I have a Hauppauge Nova-S-Plus DVB-S  I am having an
issue where by when I attempt to do an initial scan a
transponder I am unable to tune to this transponder.
I am reasonably sure that the transponder is accurate
and my  dish is aimed "I can get this tp on my fta
receiver" When I use kaffeine it tells me my snr is
at 16% and my signal is at 3-4%. Any tips would be
greatly appreciated. 

root at heartofgold:~# scan -n sat
scanning 61.5w
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and
'/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
initial transponder 12414000 R 20000000 3
initial transponder 12414000 L 20000000 3

I get the following in /var/log/messages
