I only have a HDHR so you may have other options. I can select "minimal 
updates" when scanning and then it does not delete the old info. Of 
course, for me scanning does not work and I have to manually edit the 
channels table to add a channel but thats a bug in the hdhr code and 
should not affect dvb. (Problem scanning cable channels)
