Well you could try disabling active scanning, which is what I've done.
 This means, I think, that EIT data is only populated while you are
recording something.  EIT data for the radio stations is provided a
week in advance so, provided you make a recording every couple of days
you should be OK.  I'm not sure if the recording needs to be on a
particular multiplex but I've not worried about that and never had a
problem with guide data on the (admittedly rare) occasions when I've
scheduled a radio recording.
