I omitted the trailing slash in the definition, so it didn't find the
files.
I corrected it and now I don't have "no title"s anymore, but there are
many holes in the epg ( e.g. on "bbc 1 e mids" I have epg for today, the
first 3 programmes of tomorrow, then it skips to the 2nd and from there
to the 6th).
Is it because they're slow broadcasting it? 
The german channels on astra at 19.2 (which unfortunately I cannot
understand) use the standard method and the weekly epg is almost
instantaneous.
