Hi Klaus, 
I suppose that the PID is not defined as "video" in the stream. 
I am not an expert but if you let "update PID automatically" on VDR Setup , 
the VPID and PPID fall to zero, if you disable this update and set manually 
information you can watch the channel but no recording possible
This is also indicated on kingofsat : ITV HD 28.5E 11426H

Thanks for your help

Dom
