As it's EIT related, it may be possible to use an EIT fixup within the
EIT parser and only have it affect your local/country EIT data.
However, it would likely have to be general (i.e. all titles having a
colon might be split into title and subtitle and it might effect
titles that are actually okay).

It does, on a title by title basis.
A workable EIT/XMLTV suggestion would be to use on of the
tv_grab_dvb_xxx grabber(s) which grab the EIT data and dump it to an
XMLTV file. This file could then be post-processed to update
titles/subtitles before finally importing into mythfilldatabase. EIT
scanning would be turned off in MythTV itself, so you might lose any
last-minute guide updates. There's always a trade off :)
You could always write a simple BASH/SQL script that postprocesses the
data in the database too, and limit it to those program titles causing
