Channels.conf (relevant part, i think) looks something like this

MTV3;MTV Oy=Digita Finland:482:B8C23D23G8M64N3S0T8Y0:T:0:305=2:561=fin at 4,562=dut at 4:5010;1073=fin,1074=dut:0:49:8438:8193:0

All of these tune fine. However if I set UpdateChannels to 4 (new channels)
or 5 (new transponders) after a couple of seconds it turns into this

MTV3;MTV Oy=Digita Finland:658000000:B8C23D23G8M64N3S0T8Y0:T:0:305=2:561=fin at 4,562=dut at 4:5010;1073=fin,1074=dut:0:49:8438:8193:0

and obviously those channels at 482MHz no longer work.

How is this useful and how do I make it stop? Keeping UpdateChannels at 3 has
been my non-solution for some years now but it's getting annoying when
channels seem to change their settings so infuriatingly often.
