I am running SVN head with dvb_eitscan set to zero for all my cards so I 
should only be receiving EIT passively.  Nevertheless after a short 
while of watching live TV I receive a full set of programme information. 
  I've tested this by emptying both the eit_cache and program tables in 
the database.  They quickly fill up again.  This is with the patch I 
submitted though that should only be needed to ensure that passive EIT 
scanning continues after changing channel.
