Looks like when it did the epg for atsc it deleted the data that was copied over

Sat:
Extra
News/Business. Jeannie Mai, Lauren Sanchez, Kate Gosselin. (2010) Reality TV star Kate Gosselin; actress Angelina Jolie ('Salt'); summer celebrity weddings. New. (CC) (Stereo)


ATSC:
Extra
No description provided for this event.

Sat:
Everybody Loves Raymond
Sweet Charity
Series/Special. Ray Romano, Patricia Heaton, Doris Roberts. (2003) Ray relishes his volunteer work at the hospital because patients treat him like a celebrity. (CC) (Stereo)

ATSC:
Everybody Loves Raymond
Sweet Charity
Ray relishes his volunteer work at the hospital because patients treat him like a celebrity.

Sat:
Friday Night Lights
I Can't
Series/Special. Kyle Chandler, Connie Britton, Aimee Teegarden. (2010) Big Mary urges Eric to find a new way to coach; Tim puts Tami in an uncomfortable situation. New. (CC) (Stereo)

ATSC:
Friday Night Lights
I Can't
Coach Taylor is encouraged by Big Mary to find a new way of motivating and leading his team; Becky goes to Tim for help, and he accidentally puts Tami in an uncomfortable position; Vince deals with his mother's medical emergency; Luke's parents help.

And that's for the atsc channels that are close to correct KMSB sat list:
Family Guy, House, The good Guys, News
 which agrees with zap2it.
ATSC list:
Family Guy, Bones, House, News.
And because ATSC KMSB often doesn't set some bit that says more info is coming, it has "No description provided for this event." for all events.

Think it's time to look more into getting Schedules Direct working iwth vdr.

epgsync seemed to work for copying over the sat channels that matched
the atsc channels. One problem I found, was I had to rename the sat
channels so the short name matched exactly the atsc names. I used
different names to show which was which. Another problem I see coming up
is, what is t okeep it from trying to copy the atsc data back to the sat
data corrupting that? The sat data is more complete. There is no target
option for ATSC. The settings I used:

epgsync.ChannelByChannel = 0
epgsync.ChannelTypes = 0
epgsync.ConnectAttempts = 1
epgsync.HideMainMenuEntry = 0
epgsync.NowNext = 1
epgsync.RedirectChannels = 2
epgsync.ServerIp = 127.0.0.1
epgsync.ServerPort = 6419
epgsync.SyncOnStart = 1

This looks like it could be modified to use one of the programs
http://www.schedulesdirect.org/approvedsoftware to get Schedules Direct
data. Something is needed to reformat and merge into the epgdata file.

adding the -v 3 doesn't show any more in the logs that I have seen,
but another example of how changing the channel on the timer is
messing something up:

It picked up a show and set a timer

I changed the channel to the local channel

Now the local epg data has arrived and in vdradmin timeline it show
the show in red showing it has a timer set. If I do a search, list
the shows for both sat and local and gives the option to setup a
timer for the sat channel only because the local is set. BUT, if you
go to the timers page and click on the altered entry, it says "can't
find epg". What ever is off that causes that is likely also what is
causing the OSD notices of timer conflict when there is none. Also,
when in an OSD menu, the timers are listed on the right with
text2skin/engima and below that it also says timer conflict.

Hmm ... not really solution to the problem you try to debug, but could
be a solution for you. Have you ever tried:
a) using epgsync to get the EPG from the Sat you can not watch but has
good EPG and copy it to your local station
b) limit the search timer with a channels group to only the stations
you can receive.

Like that you should be able to use searchtimer you not need to adjust
and no timers on channels you can receive.
