It doesn't have to, if they move their NID-TID-SID to the new 
transponders. VDR will then follow with the existing channel to the new 
transponder. Maybe they do that at the end of the simulcast phase.

It does work, and I've used it a lot.
If you want to move channel 1200 where channel 5 was, just mark channel 
1200 and drop it at channel 5. This works anyway, no matter whether both 
are right next to each other or 1195 channels apart.

What I do is: Go to ARD, sort by provider (also ARD), check whether some 
ARD channel has a 4-digit number, mark it, and drop it on a similar 
channel. The 4-digit channel then takes the place of the similar 
channel, moving all after that one down. The actual placement may be 
corrected later while sorting by number again.

(Assuming you meant lnbsharing patch:) The SourceCaps patch users 
probably won't agree. As long as these two patches are not merged into 
one concept, a permanent integration doesn't make much sense.

Cheers,

Udo
