Here's the result of a test I ran on my VDR (TT S2-6400).
I took your original channel entry and set the CA parameter to 0 (since I don't have
a CAM/Smartcard for that channel), created a new channel and switched to it:

newc Disney Ch.HD;SkyItalia:12207:HC34M5O0S1:S13.0E:29900:164=27:0;416=ita at 106,417=eng at 106:701:0:4128:318:7501:0
250 3364 Disney Ch.HD;SkyItalia:12207:HC34M5O0S1:S13.0E:29900:164=27:0;416=ita at 106,417=eng at 106:701:0:4128:318:7501:0
chan 3364
250 3364 Disney Ch.HD

The PIDs and CA-IDs were changed automatically:

A few seconds later, the transponder data was changed:

You may want to use a tool like dvbsnoop and check what is broadcast in the NIT of that provider.
