We need a initial scan file. This file is needed for scan to work properly. It provides a frequency that scan is going to use as a starting point from which it will proceed with its scan. These files are specific to your geographic location and have the form of
cc-Location, where cc is a two-letter country code. You will find scan files in the official dvb-apps repository.
If you cannot find a suitable initial scan file, then you can build your own withAUR:
$ w_scan -x > cc-Location
For example in Leipzig, Germany; you would look for a file called
$ scan de-Leipzig > leipzig.conf
After a few seconds, the scan should finish and all found channels will been written into
