I see this too (on the Crystal Palace transmitter).  dvbscan usually
finds several multiplexes and all the channels but, about 1 time in 5,
it stops after the first multiplex.

Looking in my '/dvb-t/uk-CrystalPalace' file there was only a single
line in there.  Last week I added a second line for the mux with the
test HD signal on.  This mux never got detected otherwise.

Running in this configuration always finds the two muxes specified in
the file, but never finds any of the others.

Scanning in mythtv was straightforward for me ( done a whle ago on
version 0.18).  I entered the details for one of the multiplexes and
the single scan found the others as well.
