I see 2 things at an initial glance.. Both I am aware of..

The first is a bug I have yet to submit a patch for.. Will do it in a day or

In SIParser -> ParseDVBEIT() change
     if (last_segment_number != last_table_id)
     if (last_segment_number != head->section_last)

This should get your guide filling in..

As for the
DVB#0 ERROR - Reading Section.
          (75) Value too large for defined data type
erorrs they are due to the EIT buffers being to small..  I have increased them
in my tree but have not gotten it quite right yet.  These won't affect guide
going in, but will just slow it down..  Its a 2-3 line fix to open up the EIT
section filter with a larger buffer if your really interested in playing with
it and see what sort of value works for you..

I think the top bug should take care of you.. Please let me know otherwise..
