Starting from scratch does not trigger an initial scan (blind-scan)
I've removed my complete TV-Headend configuration and started from scratch:
- Adding a network called "Astra 19.2E"
- Deactivate "Skip initial scan"
- No predefined muxes
- Configuration of my both dvb-adapters to 4-Port Switch
- Setting Port AB to Network "Astra 19.2E"
- Activate both adapters
In the past tv-headend began to tune and scan the networks. In the current git release TV-Headend does nothing at this time.

Today I restarted from scratcha again and was faced with the same problem. I've configured 2 Networks, and my 2 dvb devices. The 2 networks were attached to to 2 different ports on this devices AB and BA. AA and BB are free.
Tvheadend does not start initital scanning... No output, even in debug mode.

hm, ok. I thought that tvheadend will try to find a valid mux by itself.
If this is the way tvheadend should work, you can close this ticket.
This is called 'blind-scan', but it may take very long time to try all parameter combinations (especially for SAT).
We have good database (scantables) with predefined muxes from the linuxdvb project. Note that for Astra 19.2E - there is only one mux in the scan tables:
# Astra 19.2E SDT info service transponder # freq pol sr fec [CHANNEL] DELIVERY_SYSTEM = DVBS FREQUENCY = 12551500 POLARIZATION = VERTICAL SYMBOL_RATE = 22000000 INNER_FEC = 5/6 INVERSION = AUTO
The blind-scan implementation may be really tricky.
