Has anyone else noticed that the EPG data for Quest+1 OTA is quite often incorrect?
For example, today at 1600 the OTA EPG listed 'The Garage' as the current program but it was in fact 'Salvage Hunters'.

I've seen this many times of the last few weeks and found this to be an issue only with the OTA EPG, my other source, DigiGuide, has been correct at all times.

By OTA I mean the EPG on: Panny 42" Plasma, Panny 24&32" LCD, PC Hauppauge WinTV with Argus TV/Kodi/XMBC, Tesco Freeview HD STB - all are the same, every OTA EPG has the error. Surprised I've seen no mention of it anywhere at all.

Am I going mad?? Oh, and if it makes any difference I'm <5 miles from Sudbury mast.

Retuned Freeview on 15 March 2015 as Quest channels changed.
Quest is on channel 37.
Quest Red on 38.
Quest + 1 now on 92.

Channels 37 and 38 are fine.
EPG shows listings for channel 92 Quest + 1,
but selecting the channel only gives a message that it is on air 05:00-08:00.
2 re-tunes with same result.
Teething trouble?

kab242: Quest +1 has reduced it's broadcast hours and is now only available from 5am until 8am each day, which is why you are seeing that message.

StevensOnln1: The TV guide for Quest+1 shows programmes all day but can only be accessed between 5am and 8am.
What a ridiculous situation.
Stupid idea or what?

Why is quest 1 only on at the ridiculous time of between 5am and 8am.How many folk are up at 5am and have the time to watch quest TV.It was good catch up and I used it every day.I have watched quest red occasionally since it started and find it rather boring and will not be viewing it in the future

Alastair Ferguson : It's no different to the numerous other +1 channels which only broadcast for a couple of hours overnight in order to reserve their channel number in case the broadcaster wants to use it to launch another channel in future with a lower channel number rather than being allocated a number at the end of the entertainment section. In short, it's there to benefit the broadcaster rather than the viewer.
