A good question, i cant find the description of it any more... :)
EIT = Event Information Table

One question here is for me, 
How is it possible to do correct recordings, if the RST is not transmitted.
Or in other words, how do set top boxes know, if a Show is delayed ?
And start the recording at the right time ?
RST looks like the VPS system to me... And now you say it is not used ?

Are the data in the EIT enought, to detect a delayed Show ? ( like vps )

thankx,

Mirko
