I guess you're using satellite because there was never a problem with
the SD channels on DVB-T (Freeview). The eepg plugin supports Freesat
and Sky's EPGs, but it has a memory leak and doesn't support Freeview
HD, so instead I use a patch which various people have tweaked over
time. I can't find a web download site for it or when it was last posted
on this list, so if you're interested and others don't mind a 225K
attachment I can post it here again.
