The DVB-T device is a twin tuner, I have two devices on /dev/dvb/.

I don't know how to configure active or passive scaning.

I configure on the "mythtv-setup" to take programs from EIT and
configure on the Input both devices to EIT video source, is this the
correct config?

Thanks for your help.

Kind regards.
