Good question. It just doesn't.
If the transponder is not tuned to by the EPG scan or by switching to
an other (unencrypted) channel on that transponder, so that the CA
setting gets updated, VDR will consider the channel "unavailable".

Maybe it should switch to the transponder, anyway, if the channel
is selected directly (not via Up/Down). But that will have to wait
until after version 1.4.
