I have been using EPG (with N-PVR) for a while now with zero problems, but yesterday I noticed that the program information for Prime stops at 2 am next Saturday, all other channels have data for a full week including the whole of the Saturday.
Today, Prime data still stops at the same time, all other channels now have data for next Sunday.
I have looked in the xml file and there is not a second channel named Prime, the entry for Prime is channel id 1404. The last entries actually show programs titled "no listings":
  <programme
    start="20111203020000 +1300"
    stop="20111204000000 +1300"
    channel="1404">
    <title>No listings</title>
    <desc>No synopsis available</desc>
  </programme>
  <programme
    start="20111204000000 +1300"
    stop="20111205000000 +1300"
    channel="1404">
    <title>No listings</title>
    <desc>No synopsis available</desc>
  </programme>

Is anyone else in NZ seeing this?

'No listings' must be from the broadcast because EPG Collector doesn't set that title.

It does set 'No synopsis available' if no description is present.

Satellite is ok by the way. Stops at 2330 next Sunday with proper titles/descriptions.

TV1 occasionally broadcasts 'CONFIDENTIAL' as the program title for some reason.

I've sent a complaint to Prime.

They seem to have fixed the problem now, both the off-air EPG and on their own web-site.
I have noticed the "Confidential" title too. That seems to be corrected the following day.

Yesterday I noticed that there were a few "CONFIDENTIAL" titles for TV1, one only two days away, so I complained. I received the following reply:

"Apologies, it's a programmer who takes off the confidentials for TVOne and since she was away on leave it didn't get done.  They are off now but I think it won't appear until after tonights download."

No explanation on why they are there in the first place, but at least it is keeping someone in a job!

Wonder what they would do if she went on a 12 month OE?

That's probably 'CONFIDENTIAL'.
