Sorry for messing up my message and not being clear :-) Having a 2,5 year old kid running around makes it difficult to write a message and also understand what i'm writing ;-)

I'll check if i can find what i'm doing wrong.. The xml-file with tv-info is from today to 5.7.2014, so the problem has to be in the xmltv2vdr-plugin..

Unfortunately this plugin has a pretty unclear documentation that i don't understand to 100%. For example, why should need to register finnish tv-stations to the EPG-serner's list found on

I'll post later on a new topic regarding this plugin :-)

Normally VDR deletes events that have expired (i.e. where the end time

The Parameter "Setup/EPG/EPG linger time" can be used to specify a time

for which old EPG events shall be kept in the list.

I'm looking for storing future epg-data for more than 6,5 days. With
xmltv i can get up to one month of epg-data into vdr, but vdr is
cutting this to 6,5 days

You wrote "i get only epg shown up in vdr for the *last* 6,5 days".

There is no limit to future EPG events. For instance, on some channels I
up to 4 weeks of EPG events. Maybe something goes wrong when importing data
from xmltv.
