It will completely break the scheduler if you've enabled EIT on the
video source, too.  If EIT is not enabled on the video source, you don't
have to unmark the "Use on air guide" on the channel (as the channel is
associated with the video source, so if the video source isn't using it,
neither is the channel).

Time for a channel re-scan.
