When detecting new transponders (in VDR/nit.c), the source is determined
from the NIT data, as in

   int Source = cSource::FromData(cSource::stSat, BCD2INT(sd->getOrbitalPosition()), sd->getWestEastFlag());

When detecting new channels (in VDR/sdt.c), it uses the source it is
currently tuned to, since I don't think that this information is
contained in the SDT data.

But as long as you have set Setup.UpdateChannels = 0 nothing should be
updated at all.
