Hhm, they don't look wrong, but I must admit that I cannot access those 
satellites.

You may want to try the attached patch which repeats the DiSEqC message 
every 1000 ms until the tuner gets a lock on the signal. This should 
avoid the black screen with an additional delay of a little bit more 
then a second.

Bye.
