I cannot currently receive dvb-s2 channels, but I'd like to update my
plugin to work more or less correctly with it (even if I only have a
couple of users).
The wikipedia page

says that dvb-s2 has 4 possible modulations: QPSK, 8PSK, 16APSK and 32APSK.

Those are defined in s2api, frontend.h, as QPSK, PSK_8, APSK_16 and
There's also a DQPSK, which I suppose is for directv? (see below).
But in vdr's dvbdevice.c, ModulationValues only maps to strings QPSK,
PSK_8 and APSK_16.
APSK_32 and DQPSK are missing.

I read transponder information from ini files downloadable from

I examined all files there, and for S2 transponders I found these

QPSK (this is easy)
8PSK (supposedly maps to PSK_8)
16APSK (supposedly maps to APSK_16)
DIRECTV (supposedly maps to DQPSK)

so maybe APSK_32 isn't really needed?

To complicate matters further, if I try to edit a channel, vdr offers me the following modulations: QAM16, QAM32, QAM64, QAM128, QAM256, QPSK, 8PSK, 16APSK, VSB8, VSB16, QAMAUTO,

QAM modes aren't only for cable? What are VSB for?
