Ok, I kinda suspected that.
Sadly, using a custom search - on for example ^NCIS% isn't really that

I'm currently using EIT as my only source.
For some reason, my provider tends to push some shows a bit around -
and the epg from eit is updates quite fast. So I prefer eit over
importing a xml file.
A snip from dvbsnoop: ( dvbsnoop -s sec -nph -n 10000 0x12 )
DVB-DescriptorTag: 77 (0x4d) [= short_event_descriptor]
descriptor_length: 14 (0x0e)
event_name_length: 9 (0x09)
event_name: "NCIS (38)" -- Charset: Latin alphabet
text_length: 0 (0x00)
DVB-DescriptorTag: 78 (0x4e) [= extended_event_descriptor]
descriptor_length: 253 (0xfd)
descriptor_number: 0 (0x00)
last_descriptor_number: 1 (0x01)
length_of_items: 0 (0x00)
text_length: 247 (0xf7)
text: "Amerikansk krimiserie<BR>N.C.I.S. - en forkortelse

intelli" -- Charset: Latin alphabet no. 5
So, clearly my provider sends the title as "NCIS (38)" in this case :/
I've tried looking at eithelper.cpp - where I would expect the fixup
to be... Sadly my programming skills are not up for the task here.This
is a bit too much for me. :/
