When the dish has reached its target I will revert Setup.UpdateChannels 
to the original value. Maybe vdr is using some leftover data picked up 
while the dish was moving? Or maybe vdr picks up the data *before* I had 
the time to set UpdateChannels to 0 (which is done in 
Anyway all of this will be history when you'll find time to look at 
issues with steerable dishes (as you promised ;-) )

As a side note: how do a standard STB cope with all the crap that the 
broadcasters are transmitting? I'm trying to clean-up my channels.conf 
and I'm frustrated, since there are channels that a channel scan won't 
find, while there are channels that are found but aren't there, not to 
mention channels that have gratuitously changed the channel id so 
they'll get a new entry for the same channel.
