It's not just MTV3. Problems also on Nelonen and Subtv (I'm comparing
to telkku.com, and quickly checked teletext in MTV3's case). Exactly
one program entry is missing on each channel (Abyss on MTV3, Movie at
00.45 on Nelonen and an episode of X-Files on SubTV). Also, all
programs in the night after 00:00 are moved 1 hour backwards in the
EPG. It seems that someone / something (either the broadcasters or
VDR) is modifying the EPG data so that the programs seem to start 1
hour earlier, so that if someone sets a timer, their device will start
at the proper time (i.e. one hour earlier in the EET). But VDR gets
confused by this and deletes the program running at 00.00-01.00, since
there would seem to be an overlap. YLE channels are ok AFAICT.

My guess is that this is an attempt by the broadcasters to work around
buggy DVB recorders. Too bad I haven't got any other DVB devices
beside my VDR, to see if it's the broadcasters or VDR...
