I tried this with VDR 1.5.13 (AFAICS there was no change regarding VPS
recordings in vdr.c since 1.4.7) by programming 4 recordings on 2 transponders,
all with VPS. I had to increase the VPS margin to have them all within the
VPS margin, but the live channel was never switched away.

I have 3 DVB-S cards in my system.

Does your system have 3 DVB-S cards? You wrote "DVT-S", so I'm wondering
if this was just a typo.

Can all your DVB-S cards be tuned independent of each other?
IIRC you're using the "lnb sharing" patch, which might interfere here.
