Hi Joachim,

Maybe kernel switching won't help:
maybe some of the problems are in the Mantis driver.

I'd suggest you to use a latest version of dvb-apps:

http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Dvbtools
dvb-apps tools on www.linuxtv.org worked for me well.

First I experimented with czap and a channels.conf from my TV channel 
provider.
After debugging and fixing I was able to lock into a channel with it.
See http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/First_steps_with_a_DVB_card

Then I was able to see a good picture.

Then I was able to do scanning with scan.

Regards,
Marko
