channels.conf produces with dvb-apps-1.1.1-22.fc13.x86_64

Description of problem:
I'm trying to generate a VDR compatible channels.conf but the current scandvb  doesn't output some channels that it finds. This works with latest HG version of dvb-apps.

I've used the following command to produces the attached files
$ dvbscan -o vdr -x 500 -p -e 3 -u dvb-t/se-Ornskoldsvik_As  > channels.conf
$ ./scan -o vdr -x 500 -p -e 3 -u dvb-t/se-Ornskoldsvik_As  > channels-new.conf
$ diff channels.conf channels-new.conf -u > channels.diff

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
dvb-apps hg 1385:4ba933ff13fb

How reproducible:
Every time I try

Steps to Reproduce:
See above.
Actual results:
Some channels are missing or have different information

Expected results:
The output should be correct.

Differences between the files

Comment 3 Peter Robinson 2010-07-27 14:51:32 UTC
Jonas can you test w_scan and see what the difference that that gets. Also what is your country/region (seeing similar issues with another setup on a different distro that someone has asked me about).

Comment 4 Jonas Jonsson 2010-07-27 15:44:18 UTC
I tried w_scan when I discovered the problem and it detected the missing channels, but I'm not sure about the other information. Will check again with w_scan in a couple of days. Don't have access to the machine right now.

The location is Sweden Örnsköldsvik Ås, dvbscan file se_OrnskoldsvikAs.

Forgot to mention, the missing channels are encrypted MPEG4 channels.

Comment 7 Peter Robinson 2010-10-14 10:51:47 UTC
As upstream no longer does proper versioned releases of the dvb-apps package I'm looking to move this to a date snapshot release mechanism from their repository as there seems to be regular constant updates of scanning data. I've got an initial rpm that I'm testing but I need to add some of the libraries that are currently excluded. As they aren't versioned in anyway I'm reviewing the best way to move forward with this so as not to get arbitrary breakages.

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2011-06-01 13:13:30 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '13'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
