[mythtv-users] EIT Active scan

When setting up a HDHR tuner in a OTA EPG/EIT system what is the recommended setting for the Activate Active EIT Scan?  When testing a HDHR Quatro on the main network I’ve left it unchecked so the tuners can be shared.  In this configuration when and how are the EIT scans for EPG data run?

What I’ve discovered is even after 5 minutes there is nothing in the Guide, but if I select a channel and watch it then most of the time the guide populates.

Can someone explain this to me?
