Thanks for the hint, I will try to investigate this more.
I didn't know this because the old scan from dvb-apps have seemed to
find channels even with this simpler Satellite scan data that comes
withing dvb-apps for Astra.
Could you or somebody else give me an example from the satellite conf file
where all those fields are filled in? I am little confused from those
How about the channel data generated by the scan-s2 or scan with "-o vdr"
option. Should I also make some changes to those manually?
I think there must however be a bug either in scan-s2 or hvr-4000 S2API
driver, if it's will start scanning even if the given input data is
invalid. I mean that I think the driver and S2API should "hide away" the
differences between different S/S2 chipsets in a way that same data given
by the user space application should be acceptable for any card/s2-driver.
Is the bug in the scan-s2 not handling the error message from the driver
about using "AUTO" values, or is the bug in the driver not "correctly"
returning the error when all data needed is not set?
