And I worked-around this bug by changing the transfer-mode primary
limit. This however has the side effect that *any* channel change to a
non-tuned channel (i.e. the mux is not already tuned in any of the
cards) will require an additional DVB card as the tuner of the current
channel is not regarded as free when selecting the card to tune to the
new channel. I have no problem with that, as I have 3 cards and 3 muxes.
