Hi Goga777!

I'm glad everything worked out for you :).
with szap to tune to DVB-S2 channels use this option "-t 2" default is
"- t 0" which is for DVB-S
to tune to 'Astra HD Promo 2' you do:
szap -r -c 19 -t 2 "Astra HD Promo 2"
instead of using -c 19 create ~/.szap copy or move 19 as channels.conf
in ~/.szap directory. after this u can run szap -r -t 2 "Astra HD Promo 2"

As for scan you don't have do anything as far as i know it finds
DVB-S2  channels as well.
