I have attached two patches for scan-s2 at http://mercurial.intuxication.org/hg/scan-s2.

Patch1: Some fixes for problems I found. QAM_AUTO is not supported by all drivers,
in particular the HVR-4000, so one needs to use QPSK as the default and ensure that
settings are parsed properly from the network information -- the new S2 FECs and
modulations were not handled.

Patch2: Add DiSEqC 1.2 rotor support. Use it like this to move the dish to the correct
position for the scan:
 scan-s2 -r 19.2E -n dvb-s/Astra-19.2E
 scan-s2 -R 2 -n dvb-s/Astra-19.2E

A file (rotor.conf) listing the rotor positions is used (NB: rotors vary -- do check your
rotor manual).


Release early, release often.
