Hi Jose,

I had EIT like that until a few weeks back, it turned out the my cabel 
provider (Comhem Sweden) sends EIT info on a MUX where I had no channels 

When I added a channel from that MUX I got data for two days instead of 
the current and next program. Even though I did not have that channel I 
could still get the EIT data as it's not encrypted.

To find out which MUX had the EIT data I used 

I just ran a dvbscan to generate a new channels.conf, took one channel 
from each MUX, tuned that channel with czap, ran tv_grab_dvb, on must 
MUXs I got output around 100K, but on the one with EIT data I got a 2 MB
