No, just a minor change in the description. To my opinion, that must 
not result in retuning or interruption of recordings.

I've some similar reported on 2004-12-04
vdr-1.3.17, DVB-T, "changing transponder data of channel"

changing transponder data of channel 15 from T:522000000:0:1:0:2:1:2:1 to T:522000000:0:1:0:2:2:2:1

which happens every now and then.
