I presume you mean the data over Freeview?  I enabled it temporarily
the other night to see if it worked for radio data, and it did.  Do
you have EIT enabled on your backend setup?  I forget exactly where it
is in mythtv-setup.  It's not in the capture card setup but I think
it's in the section after, whatever that's called.

I have an issue with permanently enabling EIT data because it prevents
my backend shutting down on idle (it's a reported bug scheduled for
fixing in 0.22).  UK radio listings are not, I believe provided by
tv_grab_uk_rt so I'd be interested in hearing about anyone who's
successfully grabbing radio listing data for the UK freeview stations.
