i am confirming the behavior but i am almost 80% sure that it really happens.
I have one network "dvb-s" that uses 4 tuner's of satipaxe and gives me around 100 channels.
I have other networks "dvb-c" and "dvb-t" that have exactly same channels so channels with same name are merged together.
I put highter priority on satipaxe tuner's so that i am sure that subscribers will pick first all the channels from satipaxe until there's no more available tuners.
i restart tvheadend to make sure the clients subscribing will follow priority rules...and it happens... i see in few seconds a few channels being picked from satipaxe.... however and the bad behavior appears now slowly the subscriptions start to move from the satipaxe to other networks. I didn't yet realize if this is caused by own minisatip from satipaxe, own tvheadend, or something wrong on descrambling.
So i am adding a "iptv network" where the mux's will be http stream's from satipaxe and try to figure if same happens!

Tvheadend prefers to reuse active subscriptions, maybe the reason is the epgscan or some background task which will keep the IPTV services active. Anyway, the description is a bit incomplete and I really do not know what to do with this at this point. There is always possibity to analyze --trace subscription,service logs, but it should be described what happened (exact time) and what is expected to happen for a single subscription.
