 * type:  defect => Patch - Bug Fix
 * milestone:  0.25 => 0.26


 I've downgraded this from critical to minor. It doesn't affect many people
 and the workaround is simply not to enable eit scanning on any dtv
 recorder also used for it's analog side.

 I've attached a patch which should automatically disable active EIT
 scanning when an input is shared with an analog recorder. It is untested,
 but should provide a good start for anyone working on this. The main
 concern is that it has a bad effect on a DVB-S card with DiSEqC inputs.
 Since this does need a testing both for function and for no ill-effect on
 DiSEqC setups I'm moving the milestone to 0.26, but if this receives
 sufficient testing there is no reason it can't be put in for 0.25.
