the very same szap was used on dvb-s/dvb-s2 for a couple of people, so
the probability of szap not working is lesser.

We use FEC_AUTO, with the API update DVBFE_FEC_AUTO.

Inversion also doesn't matter.

Modulation also doesn't matter.

The only things that do matter

1) frequency
2) symbol rate
3) delivery system

As ralph said, probably wrong pids ?
