^Maybe it's related to changed they implied needed to be made in order to accommodate grit TV.

Though it doesn't bother me, not everyone is comfortable with wiring "live" circuits.

OK, I'll bite. What does the acronym, EIT, stand for in this context? In every company I've worked for EIT stands for Engineer in Training.

I've always seen program guide info referred to as PSIP (Program and System Information Protocol) or EPG (Electronic program guide). I hadn't run across EIT used this way before.

EIT does stand for engineer in training. It's one of the grueling steps that you have to get through, at least here in NC to be allowed to sit for the PE. Best taken when you completed your sophomore year of a BS in Engineering program, but of course they won't let you do it then.

However in the context that I used it in, EIT is PSIP info. sent out by the stations. I'm not one to use industry lingo to obfuscate a conversation so my apologies. I thought it was a common term, but that doesn't appear to be the case. MythTV refers to it in this manner when you decide if you want to use it or not.
