For me, I'm currently getting errors for tp 10773h, 10832h, 10861h,
10920h, 11479v, 11914h, 12441v and 12522v. The four low-band
transponders are known PITA of my card, and the four high-band
transponders are empty according to lyngsat.

One case looks like the lost lock state needs additional resetting on
transponder change:

18:22:09 vdr[]: ERROR: frontend 1 lost lock on channel 705, tp 110920
18:22:11 vdr[]: frontend 1 regained lock on channel 347, tp 111720

There were no other messages between these two.
