Thanks for the reply.

What's the best way to tune to that transponder?  Using SVDRP?

(ie. I'm new to VDR but would I issue a CHAN command, then wait 10
minutes (or whatever), then issue another CHAN command?)

Could I disable automatic EPG grabbing and manually tell it to grab
EPG in my script?  (using SVDRP?)
