Here is the patch.
It contains the missing code to insert the credits and it adds a new check
to eitfixup4 that tries to separate subtitle from description for some
This check can't be run on all channels or it woud cause problems, so i
added a new entry to dtv_privatetypes that is a list of ServiceIDs.

To make it work this needs to be inserted into the database:

INSERT INTO `dtv_privatetypes`
(`sitype`,`networkid`,`private_type`,`private_value`) VALUES

There is still room for improvments, but maybe the fixup function is geting
a bit large :-)
For example the guide data for hallmark begins with lots of crap like
category, year, a list of actors and director, length and then if i'm lucky
i get one or 2 words from the real "description" of the program.

This makes it hard to see something usefull in for example the program guide
in mythfrontend since it only shows one or two lines of text.

But i guess i'll have to wait until the segmented eit thing is fixed
(description is realy long and gets cutoff right at the intresting part)
before considering doing anything to it.
