    A lot of channels I should receive, are not found.
    I do receive them in earlier MP versions, in WMC 7 and in DVBviewer.

    Next are the activities I performed.

    * After a fresh install of windows, drivers, windows update and mediaportal I configured my FloppyDTV via TV Server Configuration like this:
    - Enabled CAM
    - LNB Setup
    - SAT#1, Level1AA, 19.2E Astra 1C/1E/1F/1G/1H/...
    - SAT#1, Level1AB, 23.5E Astra 1E-3A
    - SAT#1, Level1BA, 28.2E Astra 2A/2B/2D
    - SAT#1, Level1BA, 13.0E Hotbird
    - Enabled DVB-S2 tuning features

    * Start scanning channels:
    - Scanning
    - Create groups for each satellite
    - Update satellite list
    - Scan for channels

    For instance one of my favourite missing channels Nederland 1 on:
    - Astra 19.2
    - Frequency 12515000
    - Polarisation H
    - Symbol Rate 22000
    The frequency is scanned but in the scan status window the line is red saying: no signal.

    * Next to this, I notice some very strange SignalRatio values are used during scanning

    I was not able to get the debug log up up and running.
    When I went into debug mode, I got an error.
    I think this maybe has to do with the fact that I didn't went through the TV Server and/or Mediaportal wizard first.

    So after the initial scan, I performed another scan with the mediaportal logs collector activated.
    Agai, I got an error while creating in step 3 the zip file.
    I enclosed the screenprint.
    I guess I am doing something wrong but I am not able to create the needed logfiles.

    * When I, after the first scan, Update the satellite list and do a 2nd scan, some new channels are found.
    When I do this again for a 3rd time, again some new channels are found.
    Most of my preferred CanalDigitaal channels though were still missing.

    Regards, Frans.

    I installed Windows 7 tonight and I had problems like yours with the channel scan. At first I didn't find any channels at all, but after running it again and again at a few different occasions finally I had the complete list again. I don't understand why the scan only find a couple of channels at a time, but I'm glad it worked out :)
