Hi. I've been wondering for a while how to fix this issue. If I'm guessing right, the timezone for VLC program guide appears to be GMT instead of GMT+2 . Just like in this screenshot:
The red line which represents current time is correct (approx. 19:25)
For example the right time for "Karību jūras pirāti: Pasaules malā" should be 20:00-23:25 instead of 18:00-21:25.
System time is correct, and no I've had no other timezone issues in any other application.

I would really appreciate any help or comments!
I don't have my tv tuner handy so I can't reproduce the issue.
The only thing I could suggest at the moment would be to try watching tv with tvheadend or checking the epg with atsc_epg (in linuxtv-dvb-apps) and see if the times are correct or not on that.
I haven't configured any clock settings when I did set up arch, I did only set the correct time. me-tv has the same issue. I guess I use hardware clock instead of system clock and this has something to do with it.
I'm in GMT +2
I set the timezone to GMT+2 with
timedatectl set-timezone Europe/Riga
and set the time back for 2 hours in my case and now VLC and me-tv shows correct EPG data
Only now I'll have to figure out how to get the clock right when I boot into Windows!
aaand I fixed that by setting UTC to both operating systems.
