So how VDR or any other settop box should know that the channel is shifted
in time?

As an example, 75.0E has NTV and NTV-2, or DTV and DTV-2

The problem is not with overwriting the data, but appending the wrong data
for that channel.
I see both script inserted and DVB transmitted data that are differ.

Is there such "table id" setting per channel and not per EPG entry?
