I'm afraid I can't answer your question. Though I'm curious why your
program times change so often and by such small precise amounts. Are
you using over-the-air DVB-T EIT program guides as your source or
something? If so, are you aware that there's a really good grabber for
down under called Shepherd which I think may prevent time changes such
as these and could be an alternative way of solving your problem?
