    Description
    I have a strange problem with the TV EPG since upgrading to MP 1.2.3 from MP 1.2.2.
    I am using a combination of XMLTV and DVB-EPG grabbing. The problems I am experiencing are as follows:
    1) Sometimes, when I look at the EPG, more than one programme is indicated as the currently playing programme. This can be seen in a number of places in the EPG from the attached screen shots. Sometimes this is indicated by a very thin slice of EPG of no time duration (as shown in image 4), but often as something more substantial (like in image 1, 2 and 3).
    2) The actual timings and content of the EPG are also wrong - the example shown in image 1, 2 and 3 for BBC Three should be "The Voice" from 19:00, but are completely wrong (Top Gear isn't on at all). Attached is a text file which is an extract from my XML file which was imported by XMLTV which shows no such confusion in the schedule.
    I have attached two screen shots to cover my DVB-EPG setup, however, I have noticed it occurring on the channel "Challenge" and I don't even have DVB-EPG configured for this channel, so it is very confusing and may not even be a DVB-EPG problem.
    I have not included any logs, but mainly because I am not sure if it would be possible to extract the information needed from them. I was wondering if there might be a bespoke test I should run that will help identify the problem with clean logs.
    Any ideas???

    Logs are always required!

    One thing that is not clear by your post: do you have BBC 3 grabbing EPG off the air (DVB EPG) and from xmltv?
    If that is true, then it's the cause of your issue. This won't work as you can get conflicting sata and one grabber overwrites the other one's data. How xmltvimporter plugin behaves depends on the settings (which you have not posted)
