If you don't use DiSEqC you can just leave the wrong values as they are.
Or convince vdr somehow to move the dish to 42 degrees east, if it finds
0 degrees in the channels.conf. Or: disable automatic updates of the
channels.conf file and only allow it every now and then.

They would give the same result, as the transmitted info is simply wrong.

They will work only if they don't use DiSEqC to move a dish.
Or they will use some tricks in their software.
You could do the same: patching dvbscan and vdr to replace 0 with 42e and
hope that other sat positions you use don't have wrong infos as well.
