#7908: EIT scanner grabs data for channels marked as not visible

 The mythtv setup programme allows selecting whether channels are visible
 (displayed with MythTV) and whether they use the on-air guide (EIT).  When
 the EIT scanner function grabs the data it will grab even for channels
 that have been marked as not visible.

 This is confusing because it adds information to the program finder for
 channels that appear otherwise not to exist and may have been deliberately
 selected as invisible to hide them and their content.

 The fix would seem to need to be to add a test for the channel being
 visible in several SQL queries:

 The function: DBox2EPG::Use``On``Air``Guide() in dbox2epg.cpp

 The two functions called get_chan_id_from_db() in eithelper.cpp

 The function EITScanner::Start``Active``Scan() in eitscanner.cpp
