Hi

I've added a DVB-S card to my vdr-1.7.16, but I can't get a picture.

I can do an szap as follows:
TV3:12456:h:0:22500:512:650:1920

./szap -l 11300 -c channels-conf/dvb-s/OptusD1E160 TV3
reading channels from file 'channels-conf/dvb-s/OptusD1E160' zapping to 1 
'TV3':
sat 0, frequency = 12456 MHz H, symbolrate 22500000, vpid = 0x0200, apid = 
0x028a sid = 0x0780
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
status 1f | signal cd82 | snr be5c | ber 0000ff00 | unc fffffffe | 
FE_HAS_LOCK
status 1f | signal ccf8 | snr bccd | ber 00000000 | unc fffffffe | 
FE_HAS_LOCK
status 1f | signal cd03 | snr bcbe | ber 00000000 | unc fffffffe | 
FE_HAS_LOCK
status 1f | signal cd0b | snr bc6a | ber 00000000 | unc fffffffe | 
FE_HAS_LOCK


I can do a scan:
./scan -c -o vdr
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'

Done.

My setup.conf for the LNB has:
LnbFrequHi = 11300
LnbFrequLo = 10750
LnbSLOF = 12500

But vdr reports:
Oct  7 15:10:29 callin vdr: [2039] frontend 0/0 timed out while tuning to 
channel 1, tp 112483


Any ideas?  What am I missing?
