I too am seeing this late reminder problem with 8.1.3 Pro.
One reminder is configured for 8:30 AM and to send a text message 80 minutes before the event.
When you hover your mouse over the (past) event it says "Reminder sent at 9:14 PM".
A completely different event with exactly the same times says, "Reminder sent at 3:41 PM"
This particular calendar is not shared but published to an FTP site.

Hi Mark, I believe this is corrected in 8.2.1. Have you tried updating to the latest version?

Also, please be aware your computer needs to be running in order for the SMS reminder to be sent at the scheduled time. If your computer is powered off (or even in sleep mode) at the time the reminder should be sent, transmission will be delayed until the next time the computer is running.

I'm planning to improve this by having VueMinder wake the computer out of sleep mode in order to send reminders at the scheduled times, and then put the computer back into sleep mode when finished.

The computer running seems sort of obvious, but I suppose some may not figure that out... :roll:
I was just noticing 8.2 had been released when your e-mail arrived!
I will give that a try (when I get more time to play with it).
