I am running 1.3.25.
Could that fix be the reason for this loop problem in a 
LNBsharing (=multi card) system?

If i press the red button NOTHING happens according to the logfile.
After one hour, EPG scan starts (in a Multicard system!!! not after
60sec of idle as supposed), switches to 0 , to 1 and
then always(?) to a pure garbage channel, as if something has 
overwritten the variable.
Once it was "279" and another time "660".
After that the box is in endless loop.
Only repainting the OSD "Channel not available" (because
it needs a CA).

Because i always have to wait one hour of idle the "testing" is 
not very effective...
Too i can't used an "vanilla VDR" bcause the Box IS sharing LNB.
