How many video sources do you have configured in mythtv-setup? If you
only have the Nova-T-500 card in the machine (providing 2 DVB inputs),
you should only have one video source, containing all of the digital
channels from the channel scan. On the Input Connections page you
should attach this video source to both DVB-T inputs.

Both DVB tuners will then share the common EIT data, so it should be
available for all card inputs configured to use that video source.
