Dear Karl and dear Klaas,

thanks a lot for your decisive hint, this solved the problem of having no EIT 
with DVB-C.
Here a short explanation for all others who might run into the same situation:

The variable "networkid" in the table dtv_mltiplex has to be the "original 
network ID"
In my case I took the network ID for Kabel Deutschland from 
where the network ID (NID) is 61441. This is wrong for dtv_multiplex and 
filling the *original* network ID, ONID=1, into the table, EIT/EPG is now 

The difference between those two IDs is explained (in German) in
which I myself didn't know until you gave me your hint.

Thanks again and regards,

>> added the networkid 61441 (previous: NULL) for Kabel Deutschland (KDG) in 
>> table dtv_multiplex. The transport id was already populated by the scan and
>> seems to be correct but still no EPG.
