I've been preoccupied by suddenly-non-loading wifi firmware on a laptop,
but I've just gone through this DVB tuning process again - on the same
build. I found the left-arrow, and was able to set up multi-rec and the
inter-transport links and save what looks like the full channel line-up.
But after that I tried to examine the transports, and the segfault on
entering the Transport Editor happened again, leaving the tuner in a
busy state. 'sudo modprobe -rf saa7134' wasn't allowed and I did a
(slow) reboot. It's recording now.
