Getting back to the core problem, why is it that VDR detects the channel
(even gives it the right name), but takes the Frequency of the base
channel for this one instead of the correct frequency ?
E.g. he takes the the 362 MHz of th base channel instead of 378 MHz
where the channel physically resides.
