Caption streams are for the deaf, they will have descriptions
like "[Phone Rings]", "[Man speaks gibberish]", etc.
Subtitles are intended to aid you if you don't understand
the language being spoken. So they don't describe noises,
and if for example you are using English subtitles and
someone in the program speaks English the subtitles might
stop while that person is speaking.

You can set the useonairguide column on the channel table to
zero, but I'm not sure if that's what you want. The plan for
the EIT scanner to automatically detect situations like yours
and spend most of the collection time on the guide channel.

If I understand the question, yes this is sufficient with the code
in svn head. In the mythtv-eit branch you may need to truncate the
eit cache table as well.
