Comment(by satfan39):

 So far I had no sucess scanning and watching dvb-s2 channels using
 "s2api.alan.r1.patch" on trunk 19498. It compiles and installs fines, but
 I am unable to watch FTA dvb-s2 channels on Astra 19.2E  with this patch.

 I recreated a fresh database to test and scanned all Astra transponders.
 Mythtv-setup found nearly all dvb-s2 transponders and nearly all the
 dvb-s2 channels on astra 19.2E, but impossible to watch the FTA channels
 broadcasting in dvb-s2 on astra 19.2E ( simul HD, Arte HD, Astra Demo HD
 ), it will simply not tune on it ( despite the fact that the channels are
 stored in the database ).  Also tried to scan a single dvb-s2 transponder
 but had no sucess. I tried scanning from a  channel.conf files with dvb-s2
 channels but had not any sucess either... Finaly, I repeated all the tests
 above with the additionals patches  (a) vdr_conf.diff (b)
 inappropriate_mux.diff (c) channel_mux_patch2.diff and it did not work
 either...Please note that I could not apply the patch "bad_tuning_fix.dif"
 as it does not compile against trunk 19498.

 To summarise Dvb-s life tv watching was tested OK in all tests, dvb-s2
 live tv watching failed in all tests.

 Ubuntu 8.10 kernel 2.6.27-7
 Nvidia GT-8400 GS
 Core duo E6850 @ 3.15 ghz
 Azurewave twin han dvb-s2 card ( STB0899 multistandard )
