Here it is:
This couple looks like sending the EPG shifted correctly:
This couple looks like not shifting the EPG at all:
This one looks like shifting the EPG in wrong direction (its scrambled, but
I've compared the content of EPG.data with official site):

I'll probably patch the code for now to disable the received EPG processing.
But as I see it, there is an issue even when the EPG is correctly
transmitted by a provider, for example:
What VDR will do when there is a change in the program and there is a delay
in transmission of some program?
Will it have 2 entries for the same program or update the previous entry?
If EPG time is in UTC, than that's a mystery how should those coupled
channels be handled.
