Is it just me or has there been a subtle change in the RT EPG coverage? It used to be 'today+14-days' but is now just 14-days, so instead of going, say Thursday to Thursday, it is now Thursday to Wednesday.
I think it started last week so when I do the Pick of the week spot on a Thursday the next week I have to go from Wednesday to Tuesday, losing a day each week unless I compensate.

Not just you.
It appears that the Press Association data from Atlas (from which the xmltv RT files are made) is now one day shorter than it used to be.

Or not. It seems to be back up to 14 days now.

I notice now that the native EPG content is stopping at precisely midnight, whereas it sometimes went up to the channel 'Close'. Someone is tinkering with it.

Are you sure? To me the broadcast EPG looks like it always has.

The broadcasters rule was to stop at the first programme to start at or after 00:00 GMT, so midnight in winter and 1am in summer. That still appears to be the rule on other machines (my Toppy is in the loft so I can't easily check that).

As an example today Mon 18th Nov the last entry for CBBC on Channel 70 is "This is CBBC!" that runs from 18:58 on Mon 25th Nov to 05:30 on Tue 26th Nov. The last entry for BBC News is "Sportsday" 23:45-00:00 on Mon 25th Nov.

I am positive that there have, on occasions, been a few boundary crossings, but not lately. I know because I keep a spreadsheet of my timers, both actual and intended where I can tick off those I have set and it marks the midnight boundary for each day. Of course it may have been during summer time schedules if the rule is GMT timing.
