Bug#541606: vdr: Can't get EIT for Freeview (UK DVB-T)

Package: vdr
Version: 1.6.0-11
Severity: important

I upgraded straight from 1.6.0-8 to -11 so I don't know exactly when it
started going wrong, but since the upgrade the EPG is completely blank
for Freeview (DVB-T in the UK). I've got a DVB-S card as well and I can
still get the Freesat (DVB-S) EPG by using the patch for its
non-standard PIDs. Freeview uses standard PIDs but VDR can't see its EIT
any more with or without the patch. I can't see any relevant error
messages in the log.
