Hi experts,

DiBcom based dvb-t owners (DiBcom 3000P/M-C DVB-T and DiBcom 3000M-B DVB-T) 
have reported that Kaffeine scan failed.

Using DVB card "DiBcom 3000P/M-C DVB-T"
tuning DVB-T to 198500000 Hz
inv:2 bw:1 fecH:3 fecL:0 mod:1 tm:1 gi:3 hier:0
Getting frontend event
Getting frontend event
Event:  Frequency: 198500000
Transponders : 1/6
Invalid section length or timeout : pid=16
Invalid section length or timeout : pid=17
Reading PAT : pid=0
( and so on for all mplex )

As you can see, it tunes well.
But NIT and SDT can't be read (and sometimes even PAT failed).

What's really strange is that if they first zap to a channel (created by 
hand), and then scan that mplex (like dvbscan -c), it works ! In addition, 
dvbscan works fine (with or without -c)! But i can't find what's wrong with 

Any thoughts ?
