The problem is that the channel has the wrong frequency. IMHO it has the 
same frequency as the "Master" channel which is not necessarily the 
case. Editing the channel manually and trying all freqencies (there 
aren't many for Premiere and cable) is the only help I found. Once you 
have the correct frequency, VDR fills in the PID data correctly.

Klaus: Is there any debug switch for libsi, or is the only way to add 
debug prints ?
Additionally there is one question: Why are the link channels in the 
channel list. Basically, there is no need to add them there as there is 
always a portal which collects them. The dbox or WinDVBLive don't have 
them in the channel list.

dvbscan also doesn't detect the channels correctly. There they don't 
even have a name.
