This is because schedule depends on stop times being present, even
though the XMLTV DTD does not specify them as being required. It is
difficult to schedule recordings without knowing the stop
time/duration of a program.

Strace output is usually quite useless when trying to diagnose a
There is a fix in CVS to correct this problem. It still requires that
you run the xmltv output through tv_sort to fix up stop times of all
but the last programs on a given channel. Those last programs (one
per channel) will be dropped by schedule. This should not really be a
problem as it is one program that is dropped, the one at the end of
your 7 day schedule.
