I just tried it out. It does not work :( I am getting 217 services now.
So I am still missing ~1200 services.

I have run the scan using a TeVii S650. Now I have run then same using
my SkyStar HD and I got 1467 services.

So there is something not working using the TeVii S650...

Any ideas?

Regards, Artem
