Good.  That means you can ignore me.  I just knew that the output you 
showed should not have been the output provided by the mysql client 
utility for the SQL statement you gave, so I wanted to make sure you 
weren't chasing a "bug" that's due to a corrupt DB.

Good luck.  (Bowing out, now, because I know nothing about DVB or EIT.)
