I tried to tune "Kanal 5 Ukraine", but all tries failed.
I know than it's not a dish or cable problem, because I seen the channel using 
another card based on SAA7134 chip (TV COMPRO VM S350)
My card now is Twinhan 1025 (bt878)

Also channel params are valid ( http://5tv.com.ua/satelit/ )

root at voodle-dev:/root/.szap# dvbtune -f 11766000 -p H -s 27500 -c 0
Using DVB card "DST DVB-S"
tuning DVB-S to L-Band:0, Pol:H Srate=27500000, 22kHz=off
Getting frontend event

I confused about "L-Band:0,", should it be 11766000 instead of zero?
Next I tried to scan using fresh "scan" utility (get sources from cvs)

root at voodle-dev:/root/.szap# scan Sirius-2
scanning Sirius-2
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
initial transponder 11766000 H 27500000 3
>>> tune to: 11766:h:0:27500
WARNING: >>> tuning failed!!!
>>> tune to: 11766:h:0:27500 (tuning failed)
WARNING: >>> tuning failed!!!
ERROR: initial tuning failed
dumping lists (0 services)

What does mean zero in the "11766:h:0:27500" string?

JFI Sirius-2 file:
# Sirius 2 (4.8E)
# freq pol sr fec
S 11766000 H 27500000 3/4

Any ideas what's wrong?

Best regards, Nick Fedchik
