How did you setup your channels? Try doing a full scan, there was (and
probably still is) a bug in mythtv 0.22 which prevents the collection of EIT
data, if channels were setup by any other means (importing channels.conf,
Do the channels on the EIT-based source have their 'useonairguide' flags
For EIT to work, the config needs:
i) full DVB multiplex settings with associated set(s) of EIT-enabled
ii) an EIT-enabled video source (Use transmitted guide only)
iii) EIT enabled channels on that video source (useonairguide flag)
iv) for EIT scanning to start whenever the system is idle, active EIT
collection must be enabled. Passive EIT collection can occur during
recordings and LiveTV sessions only
Adding 'channel,eit,siparser' logging to the mythbackend logfile may also
aid in debugging the problem.
Try running me-tv and seeing how it goes at getting guide data. (You'll
