I used that file frequently before too ... and on my Gentoo systems it
is gone now as well.

There is a note in a README for scan-dvb of the new place to get those

git clone http://linuxtv.org/git/dtv-scan-tables.git

Looks like the format of the file has changed somewhat to what used to
be there.

Looks like this change was committed in dvb-apps in Dec 2013 ... so it's
been a while :) Not sure when the newer version went stable in Gentoo.
