    Hi.

    I found out that using WebEPG timezone corrections were applied 2 times.

    First time with exporting to tvguide.xml and secondly with importing the tvguide.xml with xmltv plugin.

    For example:

    Family Guy on BBC3 showing friday 9th. at 23:30-23:55.

    In radiotimes data shows 23:30-23:55

    Code (Text):
    1. Family Guy~~I Never Met the Dead Man~~~~false~false~true~true~true~false~false~false~~~Animation~Animated comedy series about the everyday trials and tribulations of family life. After he destroys the city's television transmitter, Peter decides to spend more time with his family.~false~09/01/2009~23:30~23:55~25
    2.  
    In tvguide.xml exported (I'm in Holland in timezone +1:00 gmt) as showing 00:30-00:55

    Code (Text):
    1.   <programme start="20090110003000" stop="20090110005500" channel="BBC THREE-bbc3@bbc.co.uk">
    2.     <title>Family Guy</title>
    3.     <sub-title>I Never Met the Dead Man</sub-title>
    4.     <desc>Animated comedy series about the everyday trials and tribulations of family life. After he destroys the city's television transmitter, Peter decides to spend more time with his family.</desc>
    5.     <category>Animation</category>
    6.     <previously-shown />
    7.   </programme>
    8.  
    In MediaPortal TVGUIDE showing at 01:30-01:55 Like times are interpeted like in gmt timezone and timezone corrected again.

    I believe that WebEPG should export the right timezone information in the tvguide.xml like this to solve the problem (that's how it would look like with TVxb):

    Code (Text):
    1.   <programme start="20090110003000 +0100" stop="20090110005500 +0100" channel="BBC THREE-bbc3@bbc.co.uk">
    2.     <title>Family Guy</title>
    3.     <sub-title>I Never Met the Dead Man</sub-title>
    4.     <desc>Animated comedy series about the everyday trials and tribulations of family life. After he destroys the city's television transmitter, Peter decides to spend more time with his family.</desc>
    5.     <category>Animation</category>
    6.     <previously-shown />
    7.   </programme>
    8.

    I've solved the problem temporarily by changing the radiotimes grabber definition file (1-xmltv_radiotimes_com.xml) from:

    Code (Text):
    1.   <Info language="en" availableDays="0" timezone="GMT Standard Time" version="2.0.3" />
    to:

    Code (Text):
    1.   <Info language="en" availableDays="0" timezone="W. Europe Standard Time" version="2.0.3" />
    This way no time change is done by WebEPG and only by the xmltv plugin in tv-server at the moment of import.
