Those who use scan-s2 application from:
http://mercurial.intuxication.org/hg/scan-s2
**
You can override the orbital position received from satelite by specifying:
-O pos Orbital position override 'S4W', 'S19.2E' - good for VDR output

I've added that parameter after I saw some channels found with invalid
positions (I'm not talking about 5.0 or 4.8, but totally invalid).
This ofcause is not acceptable for those who use diseqc.
