Was there ever any progress on this? I seem to have this same issue on
DVB-S with one particular transponder. (MTV Germany / VIVA Germany on
Astra 19.2E)

I'm not entirely sure why but my suspicion is that this started being a
problem when one of the channels on that transponder became encrypted.
(Beginning of the year, 'MTV Germany' was made 'PayTV' while VIVA
remains Free to Air.)

I don't have my logs handy right now but can look into producing some
debug output if any of the developers want to have a look.
