Comments  on part 3.

I didn't also get EIT working but managed to get XMLTV 
working. Problem with XMLTV is that it generates new rows 
to channel table and don't update the old channels (if 
correct chan_id is given in xmltv setup, I don't what is 
is opposed outcome but that it what does now). I manually 
edited the database so that it correct xmltvid's are in 
correct row/channels. This way I got the xmltv work.

I would also like to here what to do to get EIT to work..
