EIT scanning
I have installed mythTV from the binaries on a PC running FC6 with a Hauppauge dvb-t usb box.
MythTV setup would not scan for channels so I used the channels.conf workaround consequently the
networkid and transportid fields in dtv_multiplex are NULL.

If I run mythbackend with the -v eit option I get the following log:

I understand the FC6 binaries had EIT enabled - is there something else I need to do to enable it?
Thanks.

This is one reason why you have no EIT data.

Plus you need to enable EIT data collection on the datasource
and on the channels in that data source.

The best option now is to attempt a rescan of all existing transports
after deleting the existing channels.

Thanks for the suggestions. Eventually got it to work by:

1) using dvbsnoop to get the missing dtv_multiplex data
2) set useonairguide to 1 for all channels in the channel table
3) set useeit to 1 in the videosource table

Last one took awhile to discover.
