I get this on movies from DVB-T in Norway at least once a week. Bugged
the hell out of me until I realized what was happening. Quite often
late night movies are scheduled for something like 22:50, and then
rescheduled to something like 22:48. I always record a couple of minutes
before program-start, so I end up with two recordings. The second
recording, supposedly starting at 22:48, often starts recording LATER,
so it misses the start. Often only one of the scheduled showings have a
proper description. So, I end up with one showing of the full movie and
one amputated. Which one has the proper description seems a bit random
to me, but I have a hunch that there is a difference between long-term
and short-term EIT data.
