after days of frustration trying to figure out why my scan stops prematurely, i found out that somehow symbol rates below ~10000 were a problem.

the automatic satellite transponder retriever downloaded alot of useless transponders with non-standard symbol rates. i simply commented them out and the problem went away.

    Hi majidaldo2,

    can you please specify the satellite you are trying to scan or the DVB-T country+city please ?


    EDIT: Just saw that you have only a SAT card ;)
