We have received several comments about the problems with EPG on Dialog TV resulting in problems with recording since the programme being recorded doesn't get recorded properly. Dialog TV EPG mostly reads the wrong information specially on Star Movies India HD & SD.
As one of our bloggers pointed out the safest way to make sure a movie is being recorded proper is to record using the "Timer" record function rather than the "EPG" record function. The most accurate EPG is on the channel website. But we do know that sometimes that too is wrong but in rare cases. Most of the Star Movies "One Break Movie", "Sunday Firsts" & "Movie of the Month" start & end according to the information given on the website but some of the others do tend to start late and end later than the stipulated time.
Therefore when doing a "Timer" recording, please set the scheduled start time to at least "15min" before the stipulated start time on the website and set the end time to at least 1/2 hr after the stipulated end time for a Movie, if there is sufficient space even a 1hr late end time would mean that the entire movie would be recorded. If its a regular TV series then an end time 15min later than the stipulated end time would be sufficient we believe.
We do hope that Dialog TV take immediate steps to sort out problems with the EPG.
