I tested this function some time ago (already VDR 1.3.x) on a single 
card system but nothing happened - the current channel continued being 
displayed, so EPG scan simply did not seem to work.
Anybody out there who can confirm that this function really works? I 
have a multi-card system for a long time now so I can´t test it myself, 
but I am interested asking for some people that I infected with the VDR 
virus :-)

With kind regards
