If you read the documentation for mythscan2 you can see what you need to do to
get it running.. Mythscan2 is not meant for long term use, but meerly was a way
for me to test the scanning and table portions outside of running the backend
all the time..  There is no check in mythscan to see if you are passing in a
command line option, and if you don't it isn't going to work.. Read on as I
have cut and pasted the required reading section below..

Quoting the documentation included with the patchfile(s):

If you want to test the EIT code that is partially in place you will need to use
the mythscan2.cpp application that is included with this tarball and edit the
QStringList and make it have all of the serviceIDs you want guide for.. The EIT
routines are not really in place so if this doesn't work well be patient.. You
will then have to build mythscan2 and run it with the dvb_tid of the transport
you want to tune to as a command line option.   Look at the database if this
doesn't make sense.  Please note that I have no intention of making an external
guide scanner, and it will all be embeded in myth and enabled via the
VideoSource screen at some point, so don't expect mythscan2 to last for
