dvb-s/s2 tuner, kaffeine w_scan

I get an error 'skipped: (srate 2848000 unsupported by driver)' when scaning satellite programs with low symbolrate, using SkyStarHD2 card.
Is there a way to fix that, or is it a hardware limit?
here is some output of w_scan:
Using SATELLITE frontend (adapter /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0)

Using DVB API 5.4
frontend 'STB0899 Multistandard' supports

I've tried latest software in windowsXP and it works, so guess this is Linux problem.
Is there a way to specify symbol rate min/max limits for mantis driver?
