- The new function cDevice::ProvidesEIT() is used to determine whether a device can
   provide EIT data and will thus be used in cEITScanner::Process() to receive EIT
   data from the channels it can receive (suggested by Rolf Ahrenberg). Note that by
   default it is assumed that a device can't provide EIT data, and only the builtin
   cDvbDevice returns true from this function.

If your receiving device is not a cDvbDevice then it will have
to implement that function and return true.

Other than that I don't see anything that changed in that area.
