The dvbsnoop method works well, managed to get the id:s correctly. But
still receiving some odd behavior.

The EIT scan runnning as background process of Backend wasn't
gathering any data, _but_ when i started to watch the channel in
question in LiveTV it started also to capture the data, and since it's
now back in schedule, it will tune onto that channel multiple times in
week and gets new EIT scheduling :)
