My multiproto version is not the latest, it is changeset 7205 dated a 
couple of months ago. My modified szap is dated from that date also, but 
it does not compile with multiproto plus. I cant find the exact links I 
downloaded multiproto and modified szap but they were mentioned on the 
linux-dvb mailing list.

As fas as changing encrypted flag, vpid, ppid and dpid, can you please 
give me an example, what I have to change in the following line:

Next HD;SkyItalia:11996:vC23M5S1Z35:S13.0E:27500:10160+160:0;400=ita,401=eng:0:919,93B:11030:64511:6400:0

Following is the log from vdr-1.5.14 with h264 patch and multiproto. If 
you want log from vdr-1.7.0 I'll send.
Channel 1854 is HD Suisse and channel 1855 is Sky Sport HD 1.
