man 5 vdr:

   EPG DATA
       ...
       E   <event id> <start time> <duration> <table id> <version>

Try something like

 E 0 1175578200 3600 0

and make sure each event gets a unique event id (the first number).
In Perl, for instance, you could do

  $Id = $time / 60 % 0xFFFF; # this gives us unique ids for every minute of over 6 weeks
