 Did you actually ''read'' the DTD that you linked? It says:

 All dates and times in this DTD follow the same format, loosely based

 Note the word "loosely". Qt::ISODate says:

         ISO 8601 extended format: either YYYY-MM-DD for dates or YYYY-MM-
 DDTHH:MM:SS for combined dates and times.



 XMLTV's date format is '''not''' ISO 8601. The two simply are '''not'''
