Are you sure that, in addition to enabling EIT for the video source, you've 
enabled it on the individual channels?  That's about all I can think of.  If 
you have you should see activity in the backend log when it scans for EIT 

I'm in New Jersey and am using OTA digital stations out of New York.  What 
I've seen of EIT wasn't very good.  The thing that really tore it for me was 
that the data doesn't even seem to have episode titles (that is the 
'subtitle' used in the database)...just a title and description.
