No, it's intended to allow you to fill in the program information
for one channel on one source. It is a hack to allow you to get
program information when in a DVB-S situation where you need to
define multiple sources in MythTV for programming source distributed
across two, three or four LNB polarizations; where all the EIT
information is sent on one channel in one of those sources.

The cross-source EIT hack will be removed once the DiSEqC info is
linked more intelligently to the dtv_multiplex rows and one source
can be defined for all polarizations on the same bird & frequency.
