Dear Elie,

If I understand you correctly, you want to run a series of separate 
calculations, one for each q in which you are interested.  You can 
perform the calculations for one phonon per input file by setting 
ldisp=.false. and defining the q you need at the bottom of the file.

For example

title line
0.0000000 0.0000000 0.0000000 <---- q_x    q_y   q_z

Here I have left out any other variable definitions like thresholds etc. 
You can then run 10, 20, 30 or however many phonons you need to make 
your dispersion curve. In this way, you should not need start_q, etc.
