I can confirm this. I use S30W (Hispasat) and one of the providers,
Meo, broadcasts everything on DVB-S2 30000 3/4.
I can't get a lock on any of the transponders/channels. And to make
matters worse, not even scan-s2 can get a really usable channel list.
I had to build the list by hand, according to
http://pt.kingofsat.net/pack-meo.php page.

And it still doesn't work.

I use vdr-xine and xineliboutput with vdr 1.7.0 and up, plus
xine-vdpau to no avail.

What's the point of having a DVB-S2 card if we can't tune to those
channels? What's missing in the S2-3200 drivers?
