One more thing: that explains why it shows an old program, but it
doesn't explain why I see a program in the channel info that it isn't
there in the program menu.
I just issued a CLRE to be sure that's just over the air data, and,
while the running status is clearly wrong, I see (e.g. now on rai 2)

on the channel info

10:05 Apri Rai
10:15 Domenica Disney

while on the program menu I only see:

10:05 * Apri Rai

(and neither is the current program).
