Yes, there's an '*', so that's probably the case. How does the
broadcaster identify the event? I mean, is it possible that there's a
mismatch if the epg data is fed externally?
I see that there's this message in syslog (right after starting vdr).

channel 3 (RAI3) event 07:45 'E' domenica papa'' status 4

Is there a way to disable the use of the running status flag and use
just the start time?
