There's a setting in mythtv-setup:
Use quick tuning
- Live TV only
If enabled MythTV will tune using only the MPEG program number. The
program numbers change more often than DVB or ATSC tuning parameters, so
this is slightly less reliable. This will also inhibit EIT gathering
during Live TV and recording.
Do you have it set to Live TV only? If so, change it to Never.
