date should be ok, as the entries shown match current program and sysclock is 
also ok.

epg.data gets not written by vdr, so i have no such lines currently, but why?
(the last thing i did was not opening the fd_frontend at all in dvbdevice.c as 
i noticed that my FE_SLEEP patch did not work anymore for more obscure 
reasons, but that should have nothing to do with analog epg, though i can 
test if it does)

Thanks anyway.
