I agree.

Ok, I'll prepare a patch. I'm not convinced that it will help since I 
expect that the transports will get overwritten by different NITs.

This will solved differently. I'm working on a signalmonitor check for 
encrypted channels.

Then it should work. MythTV doesn't care for the network id and if the 
orginal network id is for all transports in all NITs the same it should 
work fine.
Oh, I saw the logs and have one further question did you enter "your" 
network id into dtv_multiplex.network_id? That is incorrect, it is 
actually the original network id despite the naming.
