clone the multiproto tree

from there, do a partial clone locally

hg clone -r 7200 multiproto multiproto_7200

If you can provide a log with verbose=5 for the channels which it doesn't
scan it will be a bit more helpful. Will need the logs (/var/log/messages)
to debug this as well. The module parameters the same for both the
STB0899 and the STB6100

The log is just the output of the scan utility, will need the output from
the driver and a bit of thoughts.
