JoshyFun. The command line was "scan -a 1 -o vdr -p -x 0 
Kaffeine_Astra_2A_2B_2D-28.2e > channels.conf".

BSkyB - BBC 2 England:10773:h:S28.2E:22000:5100:5101,5102:5103:0:6302:0:0:0

My questions are "what has caused this change, and how can I force this to 

Perhaps this change isn't what made things work but I'd like to know for next
