Ever since the Freesat platform was launched a few months ago, the EPG 
data is being broadcasted along the program on a non standard PID. Take 
a look at this page http://www.rst38.org.uk/vdr/ . There is a patch 
(Patch for vdr 1.7.x) which enables VDR to fetch the EPG data from live TV.

The patch for 1.7.x also applies cleanly to 1.6.0. Make sure to do a 
"make clean && make" after applying the patch.

It is working well on my VDR machine.

Regards,
  André
