Thanks a lot!
I have another reporting: in AltDVB 2.3 if i add new txp manually. And i scan it have the signal and the channel is properly scanned and found.
But after it, if i add new txp on the same sat and i scan it the software found the previous channel on the previous txp. :o

Please put frequencies in kHz, not MHz, so instead of 10894 put 10894000 and for 11324 put 11324000.

kHz frequencies precision is useful for very low SR transmissions (less than ~500 ksps), but for higher SR values this might be needed to add "000" to be in line with that precision.

Maybe this will help?

Yes, Mr. Orbita, this fixes it! Thank you!
But i have just know that my TBS 5980 has more limit than a PCI-E TBS like 6903 or 6925.
Now if a txp has no signal with the relock time AltDVB crashes and i have to restart it. :roll:

You might try to change Relock Time to higher value than 5. I think there might be a problem if 5980 is slower than relock time, because it might fall into loop of relock attempts (not sure, just guessing).

Try to set 10 sec and if this will help - you can try to set lower value until you reach the limit.

Additional tip: 5980 might have slower relock if you will try to lock a channel with low SR. I remember that for some cards lower SR = slower lock time (longer timeout for no signal cases). So for moving dish the best is to start with stronger signal with higher SR, just to point the dish ;)
