[vdr] diseqc.conf for 4x1 switch

Hi,

I have a Wavefrontier 55 with four heads. I cover 1W, S5E,
S13E and S19.2E.

Scanning the channels with the scan tool worked well.
I used the scan -s switch 0-3 to cover all heads.
(scan included in the Debian dvb-utils package)

I collected 2717 channels or something from all 4 heads
cating the results into VDR channels.conf

I now try to configure the diseqc.conf in VDR.

I found an example in an old mail from the maillist.
http://linvdr.org/mailinglists/vdr/2003/03/msg00620.html

With these settings I can get the channels from the 1W head,
but when I pick a channel from S5E I get No signal.

Do anyone have a similar setup and can give me a hint how to
configure my diseqc.conf ? or can it be another problem ?

I have tested S5E separatly (bypassing the switch) and
that works.
