AFAIK VDR isn't capable of that.  I just remember to tune an EEPG
transponder every few days.  You could write a little cron script to
tune your EEPG transponder each day at some hour like 4am (assuming
you're sleeping at that time), let it sit for however long it takes to
populate, and then tune back to the channel it was on previously.
