This all looks great, can't wait to try it out :-)

Just checking that you're aware of the tv_grab_dvb
(http://www.darkskiez.co.uk/index.php?page=tv_grab_dvb), this is what
i'm currently using to parse the EIT tables. It seems to be able to
extract some more detailed info than what's included in your V1 patch,
so may be worth a look. No point in reinventing the wheel here!

Having had a quick look at the patch there's one thing that struck me,
there doesn't appear to be any support for big-endian systems, not
that i'm using one. Again, it may be worth looking at tv_grab_dvb to
see how this was made endian independant. Just a thought.

Hope to find time to try the patch out sometime this week, once again
thanks for spending effort on DVB support, it's most appreciated!

Steve
