The problem is that the channel has the wrong frequency. IMHO it has the
same frequency as the "Master" channel which is not necessarily the
case. Editing the channel manually and trying all freqencies (there
aren't many for Premiere and cable) is the only help I found. Once you
have the correct frequency, VDR fills in the PID data correctly.
Klaus: Is there any debug switch for libsi, or is the only way to add
debug prints ?
Additionally there is one question: Why are the link channels in the
channel list. Basically, there is no need to add them there as there is
always a portal which collects them. The dbox or WinDVBLive don't have
them in the channel list.
dvbscan also doesn't detect the channels correctly. There they don't
even have a name.
