If you use the channel scanner in MythTV, and enable EIT on the video
source you configure for your DVB-T input, the EIT EPG should be
gathered automatically. If it isn't, use the channel editor and ensure
that 'Use on-air guide' is enabled for your DVB-T channels.
If you enable active EIT collection in mythtv-setup when configuring
the DVB capture card, the EIT scanner will also scan for listings data
when it is idle, but this /may/ result in gradually increasing memory
usage for mythbackend (there is a related thread on this possible
The current situation with matching up XMLTV data/IDs with DVB
channels still requires manual updating of DVB channel entries, but
this should be improved in the near future.
