Ah, this is interesting. I definitely have 'useonairguide' switched off
of all the dvb-s transponder channels except the ones i watch. So maybe
the EIT is on a channel not being scanned. However, how does this
explain that when i am watching the channels concerned, epgsnoop will
retrieve the EPG data correctly. Seem like the active and passive
scanners are using different mechanisms to gather the data. What
algorithm does mythtv use to determine what channel EPG data is on ? How
does epgsnoop get it right. Can we not get mythtv to do the right thing
like epgsnoop ?
