No I didn't try the fix, for me it was temp. enough to set the update  
channel to "Names and PIDs".
I did not saw in the Portal thread, that you have already inform  
Klaus. So that I thought I post this issue to the VDR mailing list, to  
test maybe something and to solve this problem maybe in the next VDR  
version.

Bye,
