I've tried to AUTO scan since there seems to be changes in the DIB3000MC code.
I've got a WinTV NOVA T USB 2.

It scans properly when using uk-CrystalPalace
It can only AUTO scan (0, +167k, -167K) the HDTV trial channels (ITV,
Ch4, BBC, Five)

"scan" from dvb-apps
Everything ok with the default file uk-CrystalPalace
T 505833333 8MHz 3/4 NONE QAM16 2k 1/32 NONE
But if I try
T 505833333 8MHz NONE NONE QAM16 2k 1/32 NONE
it does not work.

For the HDTV channels I use in "scan"
T 554000000 8MHz NONE NONE QAM64 1/32 NONE
which works.

So it seems that one has to specify 3/4 for the standard channels
(QAM16 2k), while for HDTV channels (QAM64 8k) NONE is good enough.

Could it be the reason why Kaffeine can only AUTO scan HDTV channels?
