Maybe because the time base of analogtv and the time base of VDR differ, 
and VDR thinks that all entries are outdated.
Check the system clock (including the year, I once had the clock 1 year 
in the future), and check the dates of the epg entries: You'll notice 
lines like that in epg.data:
   E 7056 1145559780 3420 4E 1D
.. starting with E. Take the big number and re-calculate the date:
   perl -e "print scalar localtime 1145559780"
   Thu Apr 20 21:03:00 2006
This date should of course be in the near future.
