I've had success locking on a 27500 mux with being as much as 15MHz
off. Going at 5 or 8MHz per step should be more than enough. There was
some talk about an API change for this aloooong time ago, since some
demods support scanning in some ways, but I think it never ended up in
anything useful (according to this mailing list at least). You need to
scan using different symbol rates though, which makes it a pain. There
are so many of them. One should have a list of regularly used SRs some
place, but I have found none.
