I, OTOH, can confirm that I am seeing it too. I use tv_cat to merge
Dutch listings with the rt listings for BBC1 and BBC2. I use each of
the grabbers to produce xml files and use tv_cat to merge them. The
resulting xml file seems to have the correct times (the local ones
with timezone +02:00, the rt ones with timezone +01:00). But the
resulting listings in mythtv are wrong for the BBC channels and
correct for everything else.

This is with mythtv 0.23 on centos 5.
