To be more precise, _most of the usual ASTRA channels_
are not _that_ dynamic.
Every time I run a d-box scan, some channels have changed
their PIDs, so at least a few channels - even on Astra -
are quite dynamic. This may be worse on other sattelites,
so I am pretty sure that some users would very much
appreciate an Auto-PID feature in VDR.
I will post today's scan results in a separate message.

Actually, all of this could be done during the EPG scan
when vdr looks at all channels anyway.
That would not slow down anything.
VDR could keep the new PIDs in memory until more than
one successive EPG scan has detected them (to make sure
they are not false results due to transmission errors
or temporary errors on the side of the broadcaster).
VDR could display a message when new PIDs are found
and either write them out automatically or enable a
button that the user can press to write them out.
