I don't know about the recording problem, but I have dealt with this type of issues (auto-updating overwriting channels.conf) by having two copies of the channel: one with rid=0 and one with rid=1. When vdr updates the channel, it only updates the one with rid=0, leaving the other along. I then put the one with rid=1 at the end of my channel list when I never try to tune to it. A bit of a hack, but it works. > > I know, this is non-standard behaviour and you probably do not want to > support this by adjusting vdr.
