I have no solution for your problem, but I have noticed that "update channels" does not work on Digiturk DVB-S2 transponders on 7°E. But it has never worked for me, and I've 
been using VDR with rotor since 1.7.32 (now 1.7.40). Scanning with dvbscan does show the channels and their names.

I've manually added transponder info on channels.conf, but I get no channels. Channel PIDs get changed but no other channels from the transponder is received, and channel 
names are not updated.

Here's a channels.conf entry for TRT HD, which is a FTA channel:

10845HS2:10845:HC56M2O20S1:S7.0E:30000:2432=27:3435=ORJ at 3;3434=tur at 106:0:0:8108:126:20700:0
