It doesn't sound like you actually successfully did that, because...

...of this, which you correctly sniffed out as a source of trouble. The 
diseqc_config table is populated in the input editor, when you select 
the actual per-input diseqc settings; perhaps you exited from the input 
editor with exit/escape/cancel -- this will cancel out any diseqc 
changes and would leave the diseqc_config table empty. Without any 
information from the table, it defaults to port 1 on the switch (I 
assume that isn't correct for this input?)

(The value column stores the setting for a particular diseqc device -- 
its meaning changes depending on which device it applies to. For 
switches, it's the port number; for rotors, it's the satellite position, 

FYI, there is code that is supposed to populate proper tree settings 
based on the old 0.19-style setup, so in theory it should "just work" if 
you upgrade an existing database. It might not catch particularly 
strange setups, but it did get some testing on basic setups and worked 
fine for those.
