There is also a per-channel Use-EIT flag. When this is set, data is grabbed via 
EIT, but if the channel also exists in your <source>.xmltv file, the xmltv 
grabber will also update it (as I understand things).

My radio channels are set up that way (UK Freeview). All have the EIT flag set, 
and I edited them out of the <source>.xmltv file which is just left with the TV 
channels I am interested in.
