Well, it did solve the problem as far as I was able to reproduce it.
I have external EPG for some channels that don't provide more than
the "present/following" EPG data, and before the last change I
actually had "No title" in all those events on these channels
that were actually in their EIT data. After inserting the additional
'if (!HasExternalData)' checks this problem was gone.

Could it be that your extenal EPG data doesn't have 0 (zero) as
the table id?

Also note that this fixes the problem only for EPG data that is
received *after* the patch has been applied. Any external EPG
data that already has a "No title" title won't change back.
