Having no CI, I use only the FTA channels. In the meanwhile I am using
decruft to keep the channels.conf clean, there should be no encrypted
channels any more.  I'll clean up decruft's rules a little bit more. Is it
safe to assume that vdr gets epg data only from channels that are actually
in channels.conf? I guess I should use a fixed channels.conf and switch off
autopid altogether. It's already at "1" ("update existing channels only",

Yep, it's usually a 10-step operation, more or less. I'll try that tonight. 

In Lowes Crossroads, Delaware, it is a violation of local law for any
pilot or passenger to carry an ice cream cone in their pocket while
either flying or waiting to board a plane.
