Terrestrial or satellite?
I'm not really sure, but the issue should be the same in both cases: the 
service id should be sufficient to identify a channel, regardless of the 
transponder, but since some broadcasters reuse the same id in more than 
one transponder, vdr uses both the transponder and the service id to 
differentiate channels.
The result is that when a channel changes transponder (like the uk 
channels recently did), vdr would probably find a new channel instead of 
replacing the tuning data of the existing one.

Well, I think there should be a better way, but the only current option 
is to let vdr update all channels and manually delete the old, non 
working ones.
