IIRC they put the information in wrong field. For some obscure reason 
they use the short event descriptor for the main part of the event 
description when they should be using the extended event descriptor. the 
only way to fix that is to complain to the source (read Digita and 
broadcast companies). Or use an external epg input like xmltv.
