I assume you used the Crystal Palace tuning file that comes with the 
dvb-utils.  It only lists the 50600000 channel.

If you go here


YOu will see Crystal Palace has 6 channels its transmitting on

Mux 1 channel 25
Mux 2 channel 22
Mux A channel 32
Mux B channel 28
Mux C channel 34
Mux D channel 29 

I then looked up the channels here 


You need the centre frequency for digital - which is in fact the corrected 
frequencies that were talked about in previous posts. 

I have just made scan file for dvbscan (aka scan on debian) based on these 
numbers, rather than the single channel 25 number used in the distribution
and fed it into scan. [scan seems to go off after trying the centre 
frequencies you give it and explore lots of others - I killed it when it 
started to do that, but I still have all the channels I need saved into a 
channels.conf file]
