And that's only the case when programming timers using VDRAdmin?

Did you have "AutoTimer Checking" set to "Transmission Identification"?
In this case VDRAdmin will check the EPG ID and will record the event having 
that EPG ID. If the EPG ID is changed for events by the broadcasting 
company different events will be recorded.
Can you please check if that's the case?

Andreas
