Seems a plausible idea. During DVB scanning the scanner already has to determine 
what channels are in which multiplexes, whether they are video, radio or 
something else and if they are encrypted/encoded, etc. The information whether 
EIT is present must be there somewhere. Just needs a flag storing...
