Mark, did you find out what's wrong with eit?
I'm still seeing only now/next data.

Should i open a ticket for this?

I can provide logs, dvbsnoop dumps or other stuff if someone wants it.
This problem is with dvb-c (technotrend dvb-c v2.1 ff card)
I know 2-3 days of eit is sent since i have a cablebox (dreambox) that get
eit data just fine when i tune in to one channel.
