HD, ITV HD, and other encoded channels alone. It does, however, scramble the 
EPG for some other, totally unrelated channels on a range of MUXes! I presume 
it thinks it's encoded and tries to unencode it, scrambling it in the process. 
One channel EPG that becomes scrambled is QVC so no real loss there!

;-)

I thought it had been doing this scrambling when I tried it earlier in the 
week but have now proved it to myself.

Time to start adding some more printfs...
