It sometimes happens that the cross carried EIT data isn't as
complete as it should be. You see this on the STB occasionally
as missing program information while tuned to certain channels.

This is one of the reasons the built in EIT scanner visits all
multiplexes to make sure it has a complete view of the EIT data.

I exclusively use the EIT scanner and have no problems with the
guide information. Any reason you aren't using the EIT scanner?
