'Your problem seems to relate to the error we have', was their statement. They 
had no due date for fixing it though.

Maybe they would give this more priority if more people contacted
them about this. Once replying to inquiries takes up a considerable
amount of their time, they might consider doing something about it.
Perhaps you should post here how to contact them, so other viewers
of their channels could also bother them ;-)

Just curious: since as you write TV4 works and TV6 doesn't, and
both are apparently broadcast by the same provider, is there any
chance you could contact that provider and ask why this difference
exists? I mean there has to be some rationale for this...

Like making channels unrecordable :-)

I really have'nt got a clue who to ask. All physical transmission in
Sweden is done by 'Teracom AB' but channels in the MUX'es are from mixed
sources. TV4 is from 'TV4 AB' and TV6 is from 'Viasat Broadcasting UK'
if one looks in channel.conf. All the marketing around DVB-T reception
and selling smartcards for watching scrambled channels are done by
'Boxer AB'.

I suppose the key question is who is doing the DVB encoding.

The change is fairly recent though, I have recorded TV6 without problems
for years. This has occured within the last few months.
