[vdr] Re: Bug, or just me?
To follow myself up AGAIN :)
Reading through the archives I suddenly remembered VDR complained about the
EPG data, and told me I should fix it :-)

Probably my best shot at finding the problem? I guess I could use an older DVR
since I can't receive Pro7 anyway, but it'd probably be more useful to try
and help find problems in the newest code.
