[vdr] Why won't my new TT-1401 DVB-S work :(

Can anyone help me on my problem?

I've found I can get a picture with "mplayer /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0" when I 
szap, BUT only if I add the "-r" switch

szap -r -l 11300 -c /etc/vdr/vdr-1.7.15/channels.conf "Maori TV"

1) If I miss out the "-r" switch I can't get a picture from dvr0.
2) If I add the "-r" switch, mplayer detects the TS format and plays the 
live TV perfectly.
3) If I miss out the "-l 11300" I can't get the front end to lock

I still can't get the front end to lock in VDR either - so no recording and 
no live TV.

I've tried all sorts of LNB config in setup.conf - latest being:
Use DiSEqC:                no
SLOF (MHz):                11700
Low LNB frequency (MHz):   9750
High LNB frequency (MHz):  10600

But I can't get it to work.


Any ideas?
