I am seeing the following WARNING when trying to scan one of the
multiplexes in my DVB-C setup :

scanning test
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
initial transponder 466000000 6875000 0 5
>>> tune to: 466000000:INVERSION_AUTO:6875000:FEC_NONE:QAM_256
WARNING: section too short: network_id == 0x01ff, section_length ==
10, descriptors_loop_len == 8

the scan proceeds without problem, though

Is this a warning message that can be ignored ?

I would be interested to know what is causing this. It seems this plex
gives some problems while scanning for other people and applications

Best regards,
