I also tried the patch, as I thought of doing in my own thread "Wrong
language selected from transmission (YLE2 Olympics)".

On DVB-C, without the patch (on 1.3.42), I got the selections "1" and
"2", out of which "1" was selected as default (containing the Swedish
commentary, on YLE2, despite my preference of Finnish in VDR

After upgrading to 1.3.43 and trying the patch above, I get two
selections both labelled "fin" (I think I once got "fin" and "2" after
applying the patch). The first "fin" gets selected per default, but
contains in fact the Swedish commentary. I still need to manually
change to the Finnish commentary (that being the second "fin").

I tried also recording from DVB-C (with the patch); the is no
difference compared to live recordings.
