I recently bought a TiVii S660 DVB-S2 USB module and everything seemed to work fine but when I try to use Kaffeine the "Source" option is disabled in Me TV the device is "Montage Technology DS3000/TS2020" but there are no channels found during the scan.

My system is XUbuntu with XEN 4.1 Kernel.

lsusb | grep DVB shows:

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 9022:d660 TeVii Technology Ltd. DVB-S2 S660

dmesg | grep dvb shows:

[   19.561230] dvb-usb: found a 'TeVii S660 USB' in cold state, will try to load a firmware
[   19.715981] dvb-usb: downloading firmware from file 'dvb-usb-s660.fw'

[   19.971573] dvb-usb: TeVii S660 USB successfully initialized and connected.

lsmod | grep lirc shows:

ir_lirc_codec          12859  0 
lirc_dev               19204  1 ir_lirc_codec

When I try "w_scan -f s -c [MYCOUNTRY] -s [MYSAT] -X > channels.conf", I get:

w_scan version 20111203 (compiled for DVB API 5.4)
using settings for [MYSAT]
frontend_type DVB-S, channellist 11
output format czap/tzap/szap/xine
output charset 'UTF-8', use -C <charset> to override
Info: using DVB adapter auto detection.
    /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0 -> DVB-S "Montage Technology DS3000/TS2020": very good :-))

Using DVB-S frontend (adapter /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0)
-_-_-_-_ Getting frontend capabilities-_-_-_-_ 
Using DVB API 5.4
frontend 'Montage Technology DS3000/TS2020' supports
FREQ (0.95GHz ... 2.15GHz)
SRATE (1.000MBd ... 45.000MBd)
ERROR: Sorry - i couldn't get any working frequency/transponder Nothing to scan!!
