I never heard of that project before, so I guess this wiki page is the  
ultimate authority. And if there isn't any progress mentioned, there  
probably isn't any.
And to make this work you would obviously need multiplex information  
for any cable or satellite provider covered by eu_epgdata. Sounds like  
a major effort.
