TTBOMK, you can't do anything to "rush" EIT. The backend will start
scans within 5 minutes of restart if using active scanning. Passive
scanning may be better for testing as you can just tune some channel in
Live TV and it should start getting any EIT in the stream.
The one thing I can suggest is to truncate the program table between
tests to make sure you're seeing the "new" data (and not leftover data
from a previous run).
