yes, indeed :(

Is this happening after each reboot? As far as I'm concerned, I've never had 
problems with DVB-T scans.

I just tried to use Analog TV in order to confirm the problem but I cannot get 
any picture. Maybe I just don't know how to use it. I'm using commands like 
(I'm located in France):

mplayer tv:// -tv driver=v4l2:norm=SECAM:chanlist=france -tvscan autostart

... and just get some "snow" on scanned channels.
As I might have a problem with my antenna (an interior one), I am going to 
test it under Windows and report back my experience.
