Hi
In MP 1.2.3 I was grabbing epg data using EPG Grabber and importing TVGuide.xml via XmlTV plugin. When first set up times were incorrect so checke "apply time zone compensation" ("13" Hours - New Zealand).
With MP 1.3.0 my data was now 13 hours out. EPG grabber does have the correct format ie time with "+1300" in the appropriate spot. So I assumed that this is now "working" in the latest version of MP as nothing had changed. I this removed the check box in the XmlTV plugin server setup. Nothing happened and I went around in circles for a week.

Eventually I rechecked the box and changed the numbers for the compensation to "0" and this then fixed the times in EPG


I assume this is a bug and the previous data is not overwritten when removing the check?

No logs as not sure where XmlTV setup and usage log is found

Thank you for performing this test, and confirming @joecrow 's suspicion as to the cause of the problem. In principle the same problem exists with other EPG sources, such as the broadcast EPG that I use with DVB-T/T2. When a programme first appears in the EPG (7 days ahead of its broadcast time), some programmes have a generic...

MediaPortal Version: 1.22 Description The OnImportEpgPrograms event is not raised when XMLTV imports programs to the EPG. This issue is not exclusive to version 1.22, indeed I don't think it ever raised the event, but equally I wouldn't describe it as a "feature request"! I noticed this issue when using the EPG Cleaner & Schedule...
