 From my past experience, EIT data was never available for the radio channels, 
so your experiment may not have had the desired effect. Although it would 
obviously consume more disk space, you might be better off trying a TV channel 
for your test.

It's not what Nick asked you to do, he wanted a TV channel on the same multiplex 
as the radio ones (as I read what he wrote).

Bit of a chicken and egg situation you've got there, though. You can't schedule 
a recording until you know when to record, and you're implying the EIT data 
doesn't get filled unless you are recording.
