The Freeview EIP is sometimes updated when programmes overrun, but
when MythTV notices the change it can completely screw up the
recordings - http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/7369

The EIP was updated during the day this week when the snow conditions
caused Olympic events to be rescheduled.

I use the EIP because it includes series and programme ids, resulting
in better series link and duplicate episode detection than with
radiotimes data.
