[linux-dvb] scan timeouts on valid channels

Hello,

I'm using an AverMedia Volar USB2 DVB-T receiver.  When scanning some
frequencies where there are channels, it can lock the signal but then it
times out instead of tuning successfully.

Here is an example:

  $ lsusb|grep AVer
  Bus 005 Device 004: ID 07ca:b808 AVerMedia Technologies, Inc.

  $ cat scantest
  # There are channels here
  T 594000000 8MHz 2/3 2/3  QAM64 8k 1/32 NONE
  # There are no channels here
  T 203500000 8MHz 2/3 2/3  QAM64 8k 1/4 NONE
  # There are channels here but tuning times out
  T 203500000 7MHz 2/3 2/3  QAM64 8k 1/32 NONE

  $ scan -5 scantest 2>&1 | ts

Is there a way I can get those channels that time out?  I feel like I
should be able to: I can currently only tune into some minor channels
and not into the major ones like the RAI national broadcaster.


Ciao,

Enrico
