Yes I do.

So if EPG data is being received the information is inserted into
program table?

First I searched the channels with starting frequency and symbolrate but
then setup can't find others but transponders. Then I swithed the
networkid columns from NULL OR empty to 0 of the dtv_multiplex table of
the MySQL database. Then I started setup again and searched the channels
from known transponders.
