But is this EIT change pushed to MythTV, or does MythTV have do actively 
scan for EIT changes?

I don’t know. But I have seen this:
I have a power rule to record Snooker (Eurosport 1). Sometimes I have two 
Snooker recordings of the same event. They differ a little concerning 
start and end time (in the end 2 - 5 minutes difference in the recording 
length). It is DVB-S.

Maybe this is the reactione of MythTV to an EIT change, but it is 
a strange one…

Shade and sweet water!
