I don't know why it doesn't work (I have the same problem). At least it
doesn't if I try to get the channels via "tuned scan". During the scan
process it says it can lock just fine, but not when I try to watch TV

It works better for me if I make a channels.conf with scandvb, edit all
unwanted channels out, and import it into mythtv.

Unfortunatley for me it doesn't work with scandvb or szap or anything, i
can't create the channels.conf to import, and If i use a channels.conf from
the internet it doesn't work either.

The only progs that will lock and tune are dvbtune and dvbstream.

I just don't understand enough about dvb-s signals to know why it would work
with one and not the other.
