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).
