Can someone give some guidance on usage of w_scan. I downloaded most
recent version, and while trying to do the scan i get following


[root@****** w_scan-20060903]# ./w_scan -f c
w_scan version 20060902
Info: using DVB adapter auto detection.
   Found DVB-C frontend. Using adapter /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0
-_-_-_-_ Getting frontend capabilities-_-_-_-_
frontend VLSI VES1820 DVB-C supports
QAM_AUTO not supported, trying QAM_64 and QAM_256.


... (and the scan finds nothing)....
that was actually something that I was expecting, cause QAM should be
128, but i have not seen a switch that would give possibility to
adjust/set that.
