When I switch to Initial channel I dont get the channel not available 
message, however I dont get a picture as well. I believe that this 
channel is not receivable, at least not at my location. Following is my 
log when starting vdr with BBC World, then switching to Initial, then 
back to BBC World (using -l 3):
