You are correct, this is a transponder at 28E2 which
shares freq,pol+sr with 19E2...

Try with -s 0; I'm not sure if it is always the case,
but my unhacked `scan' uses 0-3 for DiSEqC positions
1/4 to 4/4 -- I've hacked this to use the range of 1-4
on all my `scan' and related tuning/streaming utilities.


Personally, I prefer `0' to mean no DiSEqC at all, A/B
as appropriate, and 1-4 to match all consumer equipment
I've got my hands on (or A-D), but that's me...
