If the program times and / or the titles are not exact, there's very little magic VDR can do.  I am using xmltv2vdr and it works very well - but the data I'm using (Radio Times for the UK BBC) seems to be the same as that which is eventually transmitted - thus no conflicts.  I have NOT seen cases such as the Australian Story in your example: are there trailing spaces?  FYI, I'm using 1.3.22.

The alternative is to populate VDR's EPG ONLY using external programs such as xmltv2vdr.  This may require a patch to VDR - I haven't needed this function so I'm not sure how to go about it.
