The new parameters are documented in

	man 5 vdr

but the parameter S is missing:

	S0 => DVB-S
	S1 => DVB-S2

For DVB-S/S2 the following parameters are new:

	S, M, O => system, modulation, rolloff

For DVB-T the following parameters are new:

	A, P => alpha, priority

By comparing the 1.6.0 man page against the 1.7.0 one, you'll see 
that a couple of parameters (for example M and C) can have much 
more values now.
