Unless i'm mistaken you're talking about passive scanning when the tuner 
is not recording (or watching live tv). And i believe EIT updates can 
take place when watching livetv - infact that is how i tested epgsnoop 
whilst *watching* live tv and it gave me EPG data.

Please refer to my previous email, there is *no* EPG data retrieved when 
watching livetv and no messages from '-v eit' either. Everything is 
setup correctly and worked as expected in a previous svn a while ago, so 
it is surely broken recently.
