[vdr] 1.3.25 Change Breaks NVOD References

Hi all,

The code introduced into 1.3.25 in eit.c which ignores EIT descriptors with
a zero duration or start time, has the side-effect of stripping out NVOD
references which (at least on my provider) have a zero duration.

Attached in a small patch which checks the start time isn't 0xFFFFFFFF (as
defined in the DVB reference - see below) before checking the fields for



5.2.4 Event Information Table (EIT)
start_time: This 40-bit field contains the start time of the event in
Universal Time, Co-ordinated (UTC) and Modified Julian Date (MJD) (see annex
C). This field is coded as 16 bits giving the 16 LSBs of MJD followed by 24
bits coded as 6 digits in 4-bit Binary Coded Decimal (BCD). If the start
time is undefined (e.g. for an event in a NVOD reference service) all bits
of the field are set to "1".
