I am experiencing a problem with the user interface in SetupTv.

I have multiple DVB-T and DVB-S tuners. I need to use SetupTV / TV Channels / TV Combinations to combine those channels that are received on both DVB-S and DVB-T.

Steps to reproduce
Open SetupTV on a system with multiple tuner types (EG DVB-S and DVB-T)
Scan for channels so that you have both DVB-S and DVB-T channels available.
Nagivate to TV Channels / TV Combinations
Select a DVB-T card and select any available channel in the left-hand pane
Select a different DVB-T channel from the left hand pane
Scroll the left-hand pane scrollbar down and up

You should see that the UI is broken at this point. If it's not, change your DVB-T channel selection a couple of times more.
Sometime channels will appear in the right-hand pane, other times they wont - it's not consistent.

The Radio Channels / Radio Combinations UI is also broken.

Logs and screenshot attached.
Reproduced on 2 different systems.

Yes. Closing and re-opening SetupTV after every new combination is certainly character building!

Well what do you know... the UI for the Radio section is behaving in exatly the same way. Both TV and Radio Combinations UI are broken!

Apologies for the slightly bum steer here. I'll update the original post.

    AW: SetupTv - Channel Combinations UI problem

    I can confirm the bug with latest MePo - used the workaround to end and restart the tvsetup for each entry. Did never try in radio, because I have only channels for TV to combine ...

    this problem has been around for quite some time now.
    It was reported some time ago in one of the SVN threads and got buried and long forgotten.

    I have already gone through the hell of mapping 50+ channels and have made backups of the mappings to import on new installs, but it would be nice to get it fixed for future users.
