By "streams" do you mean additional over the air channels or something via the Internet. Internet streams have no EAS requirement, although most probably get it by default if they are a simulcast of an over the air program.
We keep a separate EAS log for our HD2 radio stations and our TV station does the same for its 2 extra digital channels.
We just had a alternate inspection and the inspector was quite happy with that.
There would not appear to be any more requirement for verification of a digital channel than would be required for a main channel automated station; ie, that the EAS box showed a test run and when.

Subject: [sbe-eas] DTV EAS Logging Question
Can someone answer a question for me-those of you with digital TV stations that are broadcasting streams-How can you verify that an EAS Test has been broadcast on all streams? I've seen EAS log forms that include a note that says the test or activation was carried on all streams, but that appears to be the only way, at this point to document the test or activation. Is that acceptable to the FCC? Will there be something with the new equipment that indicates for sure that a test or activation ran on all streams?
