Default 101 EPG nightmare continues...

So another night, another EPG change resulting in 2 failed recordings.

Can the person who contantly updates the EPG with 1 minute changes please be fired!!

My recording of The Leftovers worked but I did not have anything else set to record. The time on the recording shows as 22:30-23:30 so if there were late changes it was probably to Billions? I assume that is what /recordedsucceeded - press i on the recording and see what start and end time it shows?

Ditto for the UEC 4 tuner decoder (no longer supported but still functions very well)

So I just noticed the below on my Explora - not sure whether or how this relates to the current issues.

New Girl S06E19 showed on the EPG as 17H00 to 17H30. On my recording (while in progress) if I press i, it shows the time as 17H00 to 17H30, but if I look at my schedule (attached), it shows the recording started at 16H54. Shortly before the recording started it still showed 17H00. With my 5 minute safety net I expect it to start recording at 16H55 but it seems it started one minute earlier.

EDIT: When I press i on the completed recording it shows the time as 16H59 to 17H29 which explains the 16H54 starting time - but the EPG or iPlate never showed 16H57 - it was always 17H00.
