Scanning is a bit different for DVB - You can't just treat it like an 
analog tuner. You need the dvb-apps package and within that there's dvbscan.

You need to tell it an initial frequency to tune to (to find an initial 
transponder) then it should dump all your channels to channels.conf.

[root at stb ~/dvb-apps/util/scan]#
./dvbscan ./dvb-t/uk-BlackHill >channels.conf
