With the new CAM handling I will most likely make it so that channels are skipped only when the user zaps up/down. If a channel is selected explicitly (either by selecting from the Channels menu or by entering the channel number - or any other direct selection) it will always switch to the transponder to get the current CA status. > Even though it looks like this topic has not raised much interest, I > think it is important and really should be addressed.

And VDR mainly being > a "video recorder" this really is a serious bug. I'll look into this one, too.
