The problem is that if you take an existing channel and change the
values in the "Edit channel" menu, you can't change the NID and TID

Just use this entry:

Radio Horeb;Eurociel:10832:hC56:S19.2E:22000:0:64=deu:0:0:61960:1:1057:0

I'm not sure if it makes much sense to offer the NID and TID in this menu,
because normally the user only knows the transponder frequency.
Maybe these values should simply be set to 0 when saving an edited
channel record, because then VDR will automatically update them the
next time this transponder is tuned to. I guess I'll make it so.
