[linux-dvb] scan not working on hotbird/sirius?

I have some troubles to scan the satellites for available channels.
I have 3 LNB's connected via a diseqc switch The positions are:
diseqc-pos 0: astra-e19.2
diseqc-pos 1: hotbird-e13.0
diseqc-pos 2: sirius-e5.0
I have installed ubuntu-gutsy with two TT-budget cards. Then I do:
# cd /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/dvb-s
# scanopts="-U -p -e3 -o vdr"
# scan -s0 $scanopts Astra-19.2E >~/astra.out
# scan -s1 $scanopts Hotbird-13.0E >~/hotbird.out
# scan -s2 $scanopts Sirius-5.0E >~/sirius.out
For astra, this seems to work as expected and finds 1138 channels.
But for hotbird, only transponders explicitly mentioned in the
initial-tuning-data-file are actually scanned. If I add more
transponders (data found from lyngsat)to the initial-tuning file,
more channels are found.
This is what I get for hotbird:
# scan -s1 $scanopts Hotbird-13.0E >hotbird.scan
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
initial transponder 12539000 H 27500000 3
initial transponder 12558000 V 27500000 3
initial transponder 11034000 V 27500000 3

So it looks like scan don't really recognize the satellite, since it
tries to tune to S0.0W. But nevertheless, I have given -s1, so scan
should know that it should use diseqc position 1.
Any ideas what's up here?
