[linux-dvb] Problems on scanning Hotbird

I'm testing an Hauppauge WinTV Nova CI DVB-s card on Knoppix with kernel 
When I try to scan the Hotbird satellites, the "scan" utility doesn't found 
all channels.
The scanning process takes about only 10 seconds and then stops without 
The "scan /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/dvb-s/Hotbird-13.0E > 
channels.conf" output ends with:

dumping lists (45 services)

I'm attaching my complete channels.conf, which is only 46 rows long (it 
should be very very longer!).
In fact, the scanning process doesn't work even with Kaffeine or MythTV, and 
if I try to manually tune some transponders no channels are found.

Using the original Hauppauge's drivers on Windows XP with the same cable and 
the same card I don't get any problem, and I can tune all channels on 
Hotbird satellite, so I don't think it is a cable or card related problem.
My dish antenna is pointed only to Hotbird, so I can't try with another 

Anyone could help me to solve this problem?

Thank you very much!
