dvbv5-scan is a command line frequency scanning tool for digital TV services that is compliant with version 5 of the DVB API, and backward compatable with the older v3 DVB API. It was developed as part of DVBv5 Tools suite, which (confusingly enough!) resides in the v4l-utils git repositiory [1].

dvbv5-scan uses a new channel/service file format, which is yet known to other applications.

Other dvb tools from this packet are dvbv5-zap, dvb-fe-tool and dvb-format-convert.

Parameters

Usage: dvbv5-scan [OPTION...] <initial file>
scan DVB services using the channel file

  -a, --adapter=adapter#     use given adapter (default 0)
  -d, --demux=demux#         use given demux (default 0)
  -f, --frontend=frontend#   use given frontend (default 0)
  -F, --file-freqs-only      don't use the other frequencies discovered during
                             scan
  -G, --get_frontend         use data from get_frontend on the output file
  -I, --input-format=format  Input format: CHANNEL, DVBV5 (default: DVBV5)
  -l, --lnbf=LNBf_type       type of LNBf to use. 'help' lists the available
                             ones
  -N, --nit                  use data from NIT table on the output file
  -o, --output=file          output filename (default: dvb_channel.conf)
  -O, --output-format=format Output format: CHANNEL, ZAP, DVBV5 (default:
                             DVBV5)
  -p, --parse-other-nit      Parse the other NIT/SDT tables
  -S, --sat_number=satellite_number
                             satellite number. If not specified, disable DISEqC
                            
  -T, --timeout-multiply=factor   Multiply scan timeouts by this factor
  -U, --freq_bpf=frequency   SCR/Unicable band-pass filter frequency to use, in
                             kHz
  -v, --verbose              be (very) verbose
  -W, --wait=time            adds aditional wait time for DISEqC command
                             completion

Mandatory or optional arguments to long options are also mandatory or optional
