 From VDR 1.7.20 announcement:

Regarding Sonnenklar.HD TV: it appeared automatically in my 
channels.conf without further modifications. I have developed 
this patch for 1.7.17 so I haven't modified my channels.conf by 
hand since then. In case this transponder change has happened 
since 1.7.17, it seems that VDR 1.7.20 should be able to add the 
new channel automatically.
