Too there are "ghost channels" in DVB-T which seems to have the
side effect that the EPG is not "aligned" properly

All those ghost channel seems to have no EPG.. but whe i select
the broken entries, i see the EPG! ("EPG scan" is disabled here because
of single LNB).

msi:~# grep "^SAT.1;" /video0/channels.conf

msi:~# grep -i "^C.*sat.1$" /video0/epg.data
C T-8468-8705-16408 SAT.1 (no EPG, but video)
C S19.2E-133-33-46 SAT.1 (EPG, video)
C T-8468-3074-16408 SAT.1 (EPG, no video(black))

Deleting the wrong channels entry does not help, few seconds 
later it's back in OSD and some (how much?) time later they will
occure in the file too.

I don't know exactly the moment the problem occurs, as i watch Sat.1 &Co. 
very very seldom, but i think when DVB-T was new (2 month ago)
all was well.
Then they changed the DVB-T transponder.
VDR does not(!) switch to the new transponder(but generates thos "0:0:"
entries IIRC).
I have to edit the new transponder freq into the channels.conf,
assuming VDR will line up.

Or what other way do i have to VDR that ther is a new DVB-T "transponder"?
It seems not to scan on it's own.

It there a way to VDR not add "CA!=0" channels,
resp. only those where the fitting CA is installed?
Too would it be nice if VDR would not record 
2h "black screen with 5MBit/s" because the wrong/expired CA is used, 
or worse reboots because of "videos stream broken" and breaks this way
other recordings.
