I'd like eepg to be packaged, but only if the memory leak can be fixed
and it's made to work on Freeview HD. The Huffman tables and marker
bytes at the start of the strings are the same as for Freesat so it just
needs changing to apply this decoding to the standard EIT pids if
necessary, not only to Freesat's pids.

I did fix a couple of memory leaks in my own local build of eepg, but I
still find issues with it killing off my tuners after extended use, so
I'm still not using it.

Tbh, it would probably be better if someone coded it from scratch.

Or rework the alternative patch as a plugin. The patch seems quite
stable to me. But it only supports Freesat and Freeview, not Sky and
whatever else eepg supports.

A smaller amount of work might be just to extend the patch to add a setup option to VDR's menus to enable/disable it (and have it disabled by default).

The it could potentially be added to the standard patchlist for debian/ubuntu/yavdr.
