I believe i'm seeing this problem too on my mythtv dev box.
There is no recordings or any other activity on it.
Only thing it is doing is eit scanning.
After a while it stops and then it is permanently stuck.
I checked my log files and the database and there have not been any eit
related activity for 2 days.
I dont believe I have any reception problems.
All I have to do is to stop and restart the backend and then most of the
time eit scanning will work for a while.
I got some logs with -v eit if someone is interested.
There was no "program not found in pat" error.
