You can disable EIT on the video source (which will disable it on all 
channels in the video source, regardless of whether they're marked as 
enabled), on the channels individually, or on the capture cards.  Since 
you're using Schedules Direct as the listings provider for this video 
source, you should disable it for the entire video source.

Note, too, that your lack of data probably indicates that you have a 
problem with the listings configuration associating the channel with the 
guide data since EIT will only overwrite or add data--not remove future 
data.  Therefore, your good Schedules Direct data never makes it in for 
that channel.  This also means that you could well have EIT enabled on 
the other channels on the video source and it may be stomping all over 
the good Schedules Direct data.  So disabling EIT on the video source 
would actually solve this issue as well.
