[vdr] How to use vdr with DVB-T - channels.conf error

Hello everybody,
I live in Belgium, and would like to setup vdr with a budget DVB-T USB
Freecom Stick.
DVB-T is working well on my system with mplayer, xine, Kaffeine.
I have generated the required channels.conf for that, using scandvb
But, with vdr (1.4.7), my channels.conf does not work.
I get this error:
$ ./runvdr
vdr: error while reading '/video/channels.conf'

When I use the original channels.conf given with vdr installation, I do not
get this error, but it does not correspond to my settings so it is useless.
The format of given channels.conf seems to be different from the one
generated by scandvb for DVB-T.
Here is an excerpt of both files:

Original VDR channels.conf
RTL Television,RTL;RTL World:12187:hC34:S19.2E

My channels.conf

Could somebody help me on that issue?
