DVB-C support is mostly untested, IIRC, so it's well possible that there 
are still bugs in the channel settings interpreting/checking code:

I wrote a long HTML document about it, search it on the lists.

No, they are ignored.

startchan is missing. It should be a channum.

[lots of analog channels, I hope you didn't try to record from *them*]

(Did tv_grab_de adapt the xmltv ids? They seem to match my grabber 
perfectly, from what I could see. Or did you use my grabber?)

Channel seems sane.

The channel_dvb table is missing, that's the most interesting one here.
