In this part of the world (NZ) there isn't a lot of info for eit on
the radio channels either, so you may just be seeing the same as what
is being put out there by the radio stations.

But I don't think you can use both for a single station. I am pretty
sure it must be eit OR xmltv. So for the stations with no xmltv data
make sure there is not an xmltvid AND you have use onair guide ticked.
