    Overlapping events in EPG

    I'm seeing overlapping EPG entries again in the Sky UK OpenTV EPG.

    I think what's happening is that when a channel changes what's going to be shown to completely different programs then the old programs aren't being deleted.

    For instance, tonight on 5STAR I'm seeing overlapping events for "Saving Private Ryan" which I think must have been removed and replaced with various completely different programs including "Fifty Shades of Grey".

    So the old problem was the program times being modified but as the EpgId was not working on OpenTV it didn't update the old entry, just wrote another one over the top.

    For me searching for "saving private ryan" returns nothing. Or did you mean last night?

    So now we need to figure out what is broken. Have you got Freesat guide disabled? My guess is they are making changes to the EPG and not retaining the same ID.

    I'll see if I can make modifications to do lots of logging.

    @Huevos I'm assuming that you did verify that you're seeing the same problem on your box(es)?

    I will assume not just 28.2 and foreign sats at times will have the same program on with different times.

    We are talking about OpenTV EPG. That is 28.2E only. If you are seeing overlaps elsewhere it won't be the same bug.

    OpenWebIf isn't working at all in the images I'm building now.
    Have I broken something in my build environment?

    When I open my box's IP in a web browser I just see "Processing Failed"

    does the build environment use oe-alliance/OpenWebif ?
