You can omit those frequencies scan is able to find by analyzing the stream. 
This results in a smaller file (and less tuning errors in case transponders 
are removed), but still all channels are available.

Do I understand you correctly and for example the following scan file would 
still find the complete set of channels?

C 113000000 6900000 NONE QAM64
C 418000000 6900000 NONE QAM256
C 466000000 6900000 NONE QAM64

If yes, I'll include those (as there's no sense in having more initial tuning 
settings than needed; three transponders just seem a good number to me if any 
of them becomes invalid).

If no, I'll complete them with the necessary entries ...
