Hi Folks,
I have a little problem with the EIT guide in freesat. It seems that for a few channels I can only the the channel info if I am watching the channel, ei. no guide information for CBS reality +1 until i tune in. Then there is only guide info for the next hour or so.
i'm sure there is somewhere I can set it to gather the guide info when not in use, but I'm buggered if i can find it.
Any ideas?

It could be that CBS reality +1 is only sending this/next for the EPG. I have about 60 channels on my DVB-C system and 2-3 only have this/next for EPG. See http://mail.planet-ian.com/munin/planet-ian.com/alpha2.planet-ian.com-mythtv_programs-day.png to see what I mean.

There is an option on mythtv setup to "keep the tuner open all the time", I think it's under the tuner options. But if the EPG is working for most channels then CBS are being "mean" with the EPG.

Hmm that hadn't occurred to me, thanks.
The main culprits really are the fitness channels. The wife needs to loose some of the baby fat :o
