Yes you're right. Well IIRC there is nothing else. You could perhaps
stop it from doing active eit scan (I dont know where is the option if
there is one). The problem is that you would only have passive scanning
which means that you get the EIT only when you are tuned to this channel
for recording, so if you dont tune on a regular basis you will have no eit.
