You need to do two things, first tick the box in the card setup in 
mythtv-setup that allows eit scanning (do for each card). Then on all 
the channels you wish to get data for, tick the 'use on air guide' bit 
in the channel editor. For the second part, mythweb will be quicker

As there will be no data coming from the grabber, it wont matter if you 
leave it running, but to save unnecessary downloading you can always 
just stop the grabber till its back up.
