Comment (by bib1963):

 Now I get it....

 The EIT scanning ONLY happens when viewing or recording a programme.

 That is, how many tuners you have does not matter...
 EIT scanning ONLY happens if you record or watch a program or at startup
 of the backend.
 EIT scanning ONLY happens on the card which is being recorded from or
 being watch.
 If you do not watch or record anything from a particular card, then the
 EIT program data is NEVER scanned for.
 If you watch or record nothing for a week, then the program listings will
 revert to empty.

 It used to be that overnight, an EIT scan would be scheduled against ALL
 cards, this appears now to have been removed.
