I have also no problem under kaffeine :-)

I don't know if that exactly similar :

Astra 19.2E    Hotbird 13.0E  Astra 28.2E

I have tried it, and it don't work at my place ???
Well, I can tune to some channels :
Vertical loband on Astra 19.2E
Vertical loband on Hotbird 13.0E,
Vertical ones on Astra 28.2E.

Thank for your answer, I would like to convert the setup from kaffeine
into vdr's diseqc.conf :
DVB0=S|Astra-19.2E|Hotbird-13.0E|Astra-28.2E
DVB0_LNB0_hi=10600
DVB0_LNB0_lo=9750
DVB0_LNB0_switch=11700
DVB0_LNB1_hi=10600
DVB0_LNB1_lo=9750
DVB0_LNB1_switch=11700
DVB0_LNB2_hi=10600
DVB0_LNB2_lo=9750
DVB0_LNB2_switch=11700
DVB0_LNB3_hi=10600
DVB0_LNB3_lo=9750
DVB0_LNB3_switch=11700

Which is the same for DVB1 and DVB2.

I would really enjoy if someone could explain me how to use the same
settings as kaffeine use :-)

Have a great day,
