It looks like the channelscan plugin tuned to a channel of another
satellite. So the rotor plugin tries to move the dish to this position.
Which ini file did you use (perhaps you can mail it to me)? And which
values for site lattitude / longitude have you entered in the setup menu
of rotor plugin? Perhaps I can reproduce this error.

rotor and channelscan should work together without problems. The
channelscan plugin just switches through channels and the rotor plugin
sends the diseqc command according to the desired satellite position.
Just the way it does when you manually switch through channels.
