Bug#687049: please support EPG for freesat/ UK (BBC, ITV, etc.)

Package: vdr
Version: 1.7.28-1
Severity: wishlist


Channels on Astra 28.2°E only show EPG info for $current and $next. The
full EPG info for the upcoming 7 days uses a different encoding scheme 
not supported by vdr. For scheduling timers or even just getting an 
overview of the current programme list, it would be very helpful to get
support for these.

I can confirm that the patch listed here
adds support for decoding UK EPG for BBC, ITV, etc. and fills in EPG
listings for the upcoming 7-8 days. It applies without problems to the
vdr 1.7.28-1 package and cooperates nicely with Astra 19.2°E and 
german/ dutch DVB-T channels.
