No hasn't helped for me. I'm still running the odler version tho and won't be home for a while. After reading Marchusb's post I thought that might help. I guess not. I think this needs to be put into mantis then?

    yesterday installed latest SVN of TVengine (14501) and problem with time offset is fixed (at least for me). Just wondering if this is coincidence or fixed because the log files do not mention fixing it.
    can somebody confirm?
    TIA Ruud.

    I think it is urgent that this will be addressed, as it is an essential part of Mediaportal to be able to use the TV guide.

    Tried fixing by using the VBscript (doesn't work) and other different ways.

    Plz look into this as soon as possible.

    Ok. Well this seems to have been introduced in REV14365 when Dero made changes to the xmltvImport. In terms of binary release snapshot this was in REV14386.

    I was having the same problem, and saw in another thread that you have to press the Refresh EPG button in the Manual Control section of the TV Server setup program , otherwise the new EPG is imported without overwriting existing data.

    So, the way I did it, in sydney, australia, was to set the timezone offset to -10 hours, then I deleted the tvguide.xml file that the xmltv plugin uses to import, then I clicked on the Refresh EPG button in TV Server setup, and then ran WebEPG to recreate the tvguide.xml file, which was then imported with the correct timezone offset..

    Hope it helps! :)

    Well I am not using an offset as my logic would dictate that xmltvnz grabs sky stuff using our timezone automaticlly... So I didnt think I needed one, but I do however get the same issue with everything 2 hours behind...

    Yip got the same issue here.... damn bugger....

    Oh well... :D
    Andy, what offset are you using for what channels?
