The changes since version 2.1.2:

- Channels that are no longer contained in the current SDT of
  a transponder are now marked with the keyword OBSOLETE in
  their name and provider fields. That way you can identify
  obsolete channels when you switch to them, and you can get the
  complete overview of all obsolete channels by sorting the
  Channels list by provider (by pressing the 0 key twice).
  Automatic deletion of obsolete channels may follow later.

What about channels on transponders which no longer get a lock while tuning, like S13.0E, 10930 H?

Shouldn't those channels be declared OBSOLTE too, when a SDT hasn't been received?

Maybe this should only be done if the device doesn't have a lock either, to avoid false positives.

But this still seems error prone -- looks like a more complex solution is needed which keeps track of how often a transponder has been seen dead over a certain period of time before declaring these channels OBSOLETE (and later delete them automatically).

I don't know if it is worth to extend the file format of channels.conf for that tracking, but at least in memory VDR could keep track of that, starting from scratch whenever VDR is restarted.
