well in response to your email i first cleared eit_cache and then
(because i could not see what was coming in because i was using
tv_grab_uk_rt to fill the program table) i deleted that also. i left it
to run for the best part of 24 hours and it has filled up with program
data. from observing it, it seems to transmit data in a quite random
fashion. it also does not seem to send data for relatively soon program
- the assumption being that this runs continuously and for a long time
(i suppose with a STB this is a reasonable assumption).

this is fantastic work. thank you very much.
