I have noticed that especially in Finnland on channel "Nelonen" the EPG data
is corrupted. That is there are missing program information, faulty times,
double or even tripple instances of the same program with same or slightly
different timings. This ofcourse means that someone should get in contact
with "Nelonen" to inform them about these things. To do that it would be
nice to have some utility that could be collecting EPG info on selected
channel(s) to back up these "accusations" :)

My EPG bugfix level is set to 0.
