With wrong recordings I mean recordings with a correct name but time 
different than intended.

For example, last sunday there was a 2-hour movie shown, made a timer 
(date, channel and time were correct) and checked the recording status 
on monday - length of recording was 14 minutes and start time was 5 
hours after the movie had ended.

Also, there has been recordings with a correct time but with wrong 
program name. This was ok, at least recordings were made but the ones 
with wrong starting time and length :-/

Application versions which I've used and problem has been there;
VDR versions at least from 1.3.28 -->
