I'm not so sure I'm having this problem after all. I just tried watching
a DVB-T channel while recording DVB-S and it worked OK. I definitely
have had problems while trying to watch/record two channels at once, and
that's been going on for some time before I became aware of the problem
with the Freeview EPG. I might have accidentally been selecting two
channels on the same card in vdradmin, although until this EPG problem
made it stop listing the Freeview ones I thought it was reasonably easy
to tell the difference because all the Freeview ones came first,
followed by Freesat, starting with BBC 1 South (and the first 3 channels
being named differently on DVB-S from DVB-T because of their regions is
another helpful clue).
