[linux-dvb] Scan utility output: Warning: filter timeout pid 0x001

Hi all,

I am using Nexus-S card with C-Band connected to it.
scan utility is used to scan the channels available in C-BAND.
I got the following error from scan utility
./scan -l C-BAND [initial tuning data file]
WARNING: filter timeout pid 0x0011
WARNING: filter timeout pid 0x0000
WARNING: filter timeout pid 0x0010

The important thing is, the scan utility works fine and gives the available
channels info when i boot the machine and try scanning. But when i continue
to run the machine without shuting down for days, then the next day itself
when i run the scan command the above said error occurs.

Please help me to fix this issue.

Thanks in advance for your help

Regards,
Thiru
