It scans only one transponder for channels, but should also add all 
Transponders from the NIT to the database. So you don't have to scan 
each transponder individually but you can simply "Scan all known 
transports" after the first "Full scan (tuned)". You might have to 
repeat the all known transports scan. I'm not sure if the NIT on Astra 
is on all transponders complete, i.e. contains all transponders.

EIT from channels.conf import can't work since the original network id 
and transport stream id are missing in the main channels.conf format.

The interesting information is missing in that file, the multiplexes 
from dtv_multiplex for this two channels.
