Hi guys. My PC clock seems to have adjusted correctly to the change back to NZ Standard Time, but my Freeview EPG data (grabbed off Optus D1, and which I've emptied and re-loaded from scratch) is now an hour out. (Running GB-PVR on a Win_Xp machine with a Hauppauge HVR3000 card). Just wondering if everyone else has correct EPG info before I take things up on the GB-PVR forum?  Or is this simply an issue with the source info from the satellite EPG not being adjusted?

Source information is currently incorrect for the freeview channels, which is rather annoying.

Should be sorted tomorrow with any luck.

Ok thanks. At least it's not my system! So the data being sent out has the wrong time associated with each channel in the listing, or is there some overall timezone stamp supplied with each listing that the source channel has to update? (Just curious how this works, not knowing much about EPGs)!

If you call freeview about this, one of the first questions they will ask you at the moment is "Are you calling RE the EPG?" so they are onto it!

Did they say when it would be fixed?

Performed a fresh scrape this morning and the data appears to be correct from tomorrow morning.

What programs are you looking at as I'm still seeing the data as being out by 12 hours now. For example Breakfast is loading at 6:30pm rather than 6:30 am

Just checked again and double checked the data over the phone with freeview.

The EIT data now appears to be sorted apart for some rogue info for 16 April which should be replaced tomorrow.
