Wrong timing about Mediaset Premium

I have a problem with mediaset premium, them EPG is wrong, is one hour ahead than the programs. What's can I do to fix it? The other providers I am using, like Sky IT are fine, also happen this problem when I was using the satellite, many times them did it. I tried to change the GMT but nothing happen.

hi you could use xmltv_time_correct then you can add time or take time 

<channel time_error="+1">TV 3</channel> which will add and hour you can find the details in the download section

Yes I know about. But are many channels and I know, when they remeber to update the timing they will fix it, so I need fix all channels again... I am searching one solution to change the time shift about all channels from the INI or something similar I don't know...

what are you viewing the guide.xml with?

right now rome italy for example us UTC+01:00 and you say the time is off by 1 hr.

whats your local timetone?UTC+01:00 by any chance?

you may have the problem with whatever your viewing the guide.xml with not using the time offset.

media portal and iptv simple client(kodi) and 2 that i know of that have this issue.

 

I am watching it with kodi and some app on android, but i am living in indonesia. I generally fixed the problem except about mediaset premium. If sky follow GMT +1 mediaset follow GMT +2. Is totally no sense, but this is be italian provider :P

you can't go by that,the time offset is set to what the  site provider reference's the time to UTC not where the channel is from.

i checked the site/ini and the time looks correct to me...

the site guide shows the times in my local time(UTC-03:00),heres a show,

14:08 - 16:00Quasi Amici - Intouchables

when i grab the data..

<programme start="20160911180800 +0200" stop="20160911200000 +0200" channel="Premium Cinema HD">
    <title lang="it">Quasi Amici - Intouchables</title>

so 14:08 UTC-03:00 and 18:08 UTC+02:00 are the exact same time...

Yes the epg formally is ok, but the streaming is one hour late. If you apply the epg you streamed is one hour early.

I am having the same problem, all other italian site ini's works fine with the timing, but mediasetpremium.it is the only one that has all the channels 1 hour early. Iv'e tried adding your suggested correction to the timezone but with no changing results.

 

UPDATE: FIXED THE PROBLEM

Ok so upon reading about channel offset, I figured this is the perfect way to correct the timing problems.

This is a bit tedious to do, because you need to do it for every single channel, but since I have only few mediaset channels it's an easy and quick fix for me.

Iv'e used Premium Cinema HD channel as an example.

<channel update="i" site="mediasetpremium.it" site_id="KE" xmltv_id="Premium Cinema HD1(name it something that doesn't exist in your channel list)">Premium Cinema HD1 (needs to have same name as xmltv_id)</channel>
<channel offset="1" same_as="Premium Cinema HD1 (needs to have same name as xmltv_id)" xmltv_id="Premium Cinema HD (here the correct name of the channel was used)">Premium Cinema HD (same correct channel name needs to be here)</channel>

Upon making this change now all my channels are perfectly timed, both in Kodi and other iOS and Android iptv apps.
