I made sure that EIT is enabled for each channel.  Looking through the log,
it looks like the same channels as before are getting data... Like I said,
however, my TV shows me current program info on every channel.  Is current
program different from future programs?  If so, maybe they're not
broadcasting the data.

If I don't get this working, I won't be crushed, but I would really like to.
