Haven't heard of an issue where EIT has to be enabled to get good 
logical channel numbers and channel names.  If you used 0.21-fixes for 
the scan, the channel scanner is being completely rewritten, so it's 
probably very different in trunk.  If you used trunk, it may be worth 
mentioning some of your details here so we can figure out whether there 
is an issue.
