Hi,

Partial success :)

I added a few free-to-air channels I was able to tune in WinXP to 
channels.conf:

Entertainment:12012:v:0:27500:2582:2581:8037
SkyNews:12207:v:0:27500:514:645:4707
WineTV:11555:h:1:27500:2372:2374:50435
AvaTest:11555:h:1:27500:2329:2330:50446
Vegas:11515:h:1:27500:3568:3567:8035
Faith:11515:h:1:27500:2375:2376:50455


The first two on LNB0, the rest on LNB1.

For LNB0, I can tune via szap2:

pavel at htpc:~/project/satelit2/szap-s2$ ./szap-s2 -r SkyNews
reading channels from file '/home/pavel/.szap/channels.conf'
zapping to 2 'SkyNews':
delivery DVB-S, modulation QPSK
sat 0, frequency 12207 MHz V, symbolrate 27500000, coderate auto, 
rolloff 0.35
vpid 0x0202, apid 0x0285, sid 0x1263
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
status 1f | signal 0136 | snr 002d | ber 00000000 | unc fffffffe | 
FE_HAS_LOCK
status 1f | signal 0136 | snr 0031 | ber 00000000 | unc fffffffe | 
FE_HAS_LOCK

and view the channels with

mplayer - < /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0

For LNB1, it seems I can get signal via szap2:

pavel at htpc:~/project/satelit2/szap-s2$ ./szap-s2 -r Faith
reading channels from file '/home/pavel/.szap/channels.conf'
zapping to 6 'Faith':
delivery DVB-S, modulation QPSK
sat 1, frequency 11515 MHz H, symbolrate 27500000, coderate auto, 
rolloff 0.35
vpid 0x0947, apid 0x0948, sid 0xc517
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
status 1f | signal 0178 | snr 0051 | ber 00000000 | unc fffffffe | 
FE_HAS_LOCK
status 1f | signal 0178 | snr 0051 | ber 00000000 | unc fffffffe | 
FE_HAS_LOCK
status 1f | signal 0178 | snr 0050 | ber 00000000 | unc fffffffe | 
FE_HAS_LOCK


However, /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 outputs no data for any of the stations 
on the second LNB1.


Perhaps it is correct and the channels I checked broadcast no stream at 
this time. Since scan2 keeps failing, please is there a place to 
download recent channels.conf for Astra 19.2E so that I can test on many 
more channels?

Thanks a lot,

Pavel.
