With regards to the zig-zag, one bug is fixed in the v4l-dvb tree.
Most likely you haven't tried that change.
I use Igor's version, but he merges v4l changes quite often.
Can you point me to a patch or code that was changes? I want to make sure I have that fix.

I did look at your patch, but that was completely against the tuning
algorithm.
Well, you know, it works :)
What is the algorithm? I didn't make major changes beside increasing the zigzag resolution for different scan stages and zigzag around the frequency that previous stage was able to detect instead of starting from the beginning. Sounds logical to me.

Along with the patch i sent, does the attached patch help you in
anyway (This works out for DVB-S2 only)?
I didn't tried to watch any DVB-S2 channels yet, not sure I have any FTA with my current directions.
But I'll try that change later for scanning.

BTW, too bad the code has very few comments inside to understand all the numeric values used for calculations.
