Channel 4 HD missing EPG for Sat and Sun, Channel 4+1 missing EPG for Sun

Here we go again. Channel 4 HD missing EPG for Sat and Sun (no EPG Sat 21 May 07:00 - Mon 23 May 07:10) this week, Channel 4+1 missing EPG for Sun (no EPG Sun 22 May 08:10 - Mon 23 May 08:10).

This seems to happen often, does this affect all Freeview PVRs or only the HDR-FOX T2 with custom firmware?

Is there anything one can do if not at home to populate the missing EPG?

Not Humax. It's Ch4. The last EPG entry on my EETV box is The King of Queens which finishes at 0700 on Sat 21. But strangely it restarts at 0710 on Mon 23. So it's only the weekend that's missing.

Yes, no and no respectively.

It's incompetence at Channel 4 and/or their transmission provider.

It'll probably get sorted before next weekend (possibly today based on past form), so it's not too much of a problem.

The EPG problem has happened a few times before. Can't remember whether it was CH4 or not though. But it's deffo 'their end'.

I often find holes in the Ch4HD epg more than a few days ahead - it's very annoying.
Weird too; sometimes it'll have, say, days 1-5, no 6, then 7. And more often than not, where Ch4HD is blank Ch4HD+1 is populated :confused:
I blame the EU ...
