Might that explain why EGP does not work?

(IIRC)I stopped VDR,
removed the DVB-T entries
added one dummy entry per transponder
Resume VDR
let VDR add "new transponders"
First i see the correct DVB-T with EGB.
Sometime later i see the extra channel entries

It seems that all DVB-T channels at 660MHz have these dupes...
