Some initial suggestions:

i) turn off the 'useonairguide' flag for those channels you don't want data for
ii) check the EIT scanning timeouts in mythtv-setup
iii) run the backend with extra 'eit,siparser,channel' verbose logging
to highlight any potential problems
iv) check your database health with optimize_mythdb.pl
v) do a full rescan to ensure multiplex/channel tuning information is accurate
