[vdr] Returning due to modification...

Hi Klaus,

On the returning due to modification issue:

At one point I accessed the setup file as root, but I run VDR as a
different user.  I changed the OSD options as the user, but the settings
were not saved to the file due to permissions issue.  So VDR was set to
update all info for the channel.

I'm not sure I fully understand the CA system, but usually after a channel
is tuned, doesn't the CA field get populated with the correct info?

Isn't the channel updating only needed one time IF the status does not
change from encrypted to FTA?  I guess I'm trying to understand what in an
encrypted channel actually does require the "returning due to
modification".

I only vaguely understand those fields (CA) since I wrote a channel
parsing program to translate a channel listing in CSV into VDR's
channel.conf format.

The other idea is if VDR has an issue tuning a channel (i.e. if there is a
failure to lock), perhaps *then* the channel entry should get "adjusted" ?

Thanks,
CR.
