Yeah, I saw just after I attached the patch. Since trac doesn't sent 
mails for new attachments I thought nobody would notice the patch until 
I commit a working one, sorry.
But munging the channum in the original patch is wrong since we need it 
later for tuning.

I had only a brief look on the patch for EIT on the special channels. 
But I don't see, why you need to use the portal channings as tuning 
channels. You might activate additional PIDs based on the portal 
channels but that isn't a good solution.
I also dislike the huge code duplication in eithelper.cpp.
