[vdr] VDR's UpdateChannels destroys channel information

I have mysterious problem with some channels.. All seem to be on
S13.0E, but on different transponders.

According to http://en.kingofsat.net/pos-13E.php page, "Disney Channel
HD Italia" is  DVB-S2, 8PSK, SR 29900. However, I seem to have DVB-S,
QPSK, SR 27500 in my channels.conf.

I have tried editing the channel directly to channels.conf, while vdr
stopped. Also I have tried editing it inside vdr, from channel list ->
edit.. After the edit, channels shows fine for a few seconds, but then
VDR updates it back to old values and channel stops showing!

Mar 21 10:42:00 yavdr vdr: [16964] switching to channel 179

If I set Setup UpdateChannels to 0, vdr will not update the channel
and it will show. But I'd like to keep channel updates enabled..

Is the transponder sending incorrect data, or what is going on?
