Hello,

while trying to setup DiseqC and scanning to my new Wetek Play OpenELEC
edition which uses VDR as a backend, I found out that the order of
satellites which is read from VDR's sources.conf is a bit weird.

This might not be too obvious when one is used to only look at that file
when editing a customized diseqc.conf for example, but it shows clearly
when the list read out of this file is displayed in a graphical,
scrollable control in which you look for a certain satellite (no
comments or groups lilke Europe, Atlantic, Asia, America displayed in
that case).
While the list starts with ascending "E" positions from Europe over to
Asia, ending the Asia part with "S177W   NSS 9", it then turns back to
Western Europe, S0.8W in order to continue again with ascending "W"
positions towards Atlantic and America groups.

In my patch I'm proposing a re-ordering of "W" positions in descending
degree order, that way also the groups "Atlantic" and "America" can be
swapped and the result is a list ordered by continous azimuth, I think
it's more intuitive when scrolling through such a list with the remote
control.
The patch is done against vdr-2.2.0, but I think it would apply to 2.3.1
as well, but haven't tried myself.


Best regards,
Lucian
