and it works ok :)
Somthing went wrong during scanning, because my definition was freshly 

Now there is question: how should I define my channels? Some time ago 
there was website with channels.conf for many positions but now it 
doesn't work. I did search now and found 
http://channelpedia.yavdr.com/gen/DVB-S/S13E/ which seems very interesting.
Some people suggest that it's better to scan channels ourselves.
I've tried scanning based of transponders list included in dvb-utils 
package, but it doesn't find all channels. I had to manually add some 
frequencies. Everyone directs to kingofsat for transponders parameters, 
but there is no downloadable form fitting "scan" command. Do you know 
such a fresh list?

it's from the start of VDR, if you don't now this command, it's probably 
from one of plugins. I use:

wuwek:~# service vdr start
Starting Linux Video Disk Recorder: vdr
Searching for plugins (VDR 1.7.27/1.7.27) (cache miss): streamdev-server 
epgsearch conflictcheckonly dvbapi quickepgsearch epgsearchonly epgfixer.

Seems it's from dvbapi which I use with local oscam to use card with VDR.
