In the case of Astra 19E2, the list of transponders is
sufficiently well-managed that pretty much regardless of
which transponder you start on, you'll get a list of most
of them, from which you'll get a list of them all.

Unlike, say, Hotbirds, where it's more or less a free-
for all...

To the original poster, what unusual things does the
output to the console of `scan -v' show, if you don't
see anything unusual for `scan' without -v ?

In particular, search for the particular frequencies
of RTL or any other transponders/channels which you
know are missing, or other obvious errors...
