MythTV does not use now/next.

You should make sure this is the only channel that has the useonairguide
flag set. You can set this in mythtv-setup in the Channel editor.

Most likely you either imported a channels.conf instead of scanning
for channels within MythTV and so don't have the proper information
in your channel and dtv_multiplex tables, or the EIT scanning is
disabled; at either the video source or channel level. Alternatively
you could be wrong about that EPG channel having usable EIT information.
This is really a question for the user's mailing list right now,
once you're getting data we can help you write a fix up routine
if you need it.
