[linux-dvb] Problems with scan

I reported earlier that the following command didn't lock anything with
my TBS8920 under kernel

   scan dvb-s/Galaxy3C-95w

but kaffeine's scan is successful.

So I built a one line channels.conf file from what I see in file
channels.dvb as created by kaffeine.

   echo 'CCTV 4-1:11780:h::20760:512:650:1' >~/.szap/channels.conf

Now 'szap -n 1' locks on a channel,

   status 1f | signal d7c0 | snr ee67 | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 | FE_HAS_LOCK

So I try again scan with the -c option, creating a supposedly correct conf file,

   scan -q -c -o zap > ~/.szap/channels.conf

CCTV 4:11070:v:0:27500:512:650:1
CCTV 9:11070:v:0:27500:513:660:2
CCTV F:11070:v:0:27500:514:670:3
CCTV E:11070:v:0:27500:518:710:7

Now trying szap again but with the new channels.conf written by 'scan'
results in no lock

   status 01 | signal c0c0 | snr 0000 | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 |

Would anyone have a suggestion where to look next.
