Cool :)

Ahh, didn't think of that call, it should be removed, because it will set the 
diseqc switch into diseqc mode, and that will block the compatability mode.

diseqc_type 1 is for a setup with a switch + 2 lnbs, while diseqc_type 0 is 
for a single lnb connected directly, it falls through because the lnb also 
needs to be set when you have a switch :)

This could be because you have reversed the satids in the dvb_channel table. 

It gains a lock, because the driver does a zig-zag scan around the frequency. 
What happends is that it locks on a channel very close on the other lnb, and 
when the dvbrecorder looks for data on the original channel, it won't find 
any, because it's not transmitted there. This issue could be detected, but I 
have not put no effort into doing so.
