Do you have a copy of source code for the the Sky EIT data processor?
The EPG guide stuff I am working on is not taken from EIT data.
It is taken from the Sky EPG data feed.
The problem is that I have to reverse engineer it, because all the
current open source decoders are out of date, and the datasource
format has changed.
I am getting there, but finding out that the data formats has changed
is slowing things down a bit.
