Yes that works - and places the programs into a very cryptic 'Programs' menu
for one to search for.
Then if one wants to watch a channel on another transponder one has to guess
which of the 100 transponders it is (there is no way of knowing before),
'Play' that, go find the 'Programs' menu and click on the service. :)

The searching and persistence of channels is the only way forward imho (and
it's how it's done in every other useful dvb player out there that I'm aware
of - including STBs).
