Comment(by anonymous):

 I can straighten out the title of Channel 2-2 programs by using gentoo
 Myth mythtv-0.20.2_p15634.  I just installed the 0.20 level, and it fixed
 channel 2 completely (desciptions and title).  A should also mention that
 I use AMD64.

 The incorrect description on channel 17 is almost correct, it just appears
 to be delayed on both levels of mythtv.

 For instance, a program on 17 at 11PM may have a description at 12:30AM or
 1AM.  This problem seems to affect all subchannels of 17.  There is a
 small chance the description will be correct, but not often.  They seem to
 be for the correct sub channel, but not the correct time.

 Neither my TV nor my set top box can display any downloaded icons, nor do
 they mention Gemstar or TV guide.  In face my TV doesn't even have a
 schedule listed in the instructions or on the menu.  All it can do is
 display the title of the current program and its description, which
 matches my set top box, but not MythTV for channel 17,  including watch

 My set top box is the Echostar DTVPAL  (misnomer, not PAL, but ATSC). From
 the DTVPAL manual:
 If you do not have a TV Guide On Screen or Guide Plus Device, you will be
 able to use the DTVPal's built in Program Guide.

 This guide does not bear a Gemstar or TV Guide logo, which my DVD recorder
 has.  It does have an Echostar Logo.

 My DVD recorder displays a week of listings, and has many channels I
 cannot receive.  The set top box only displays about one day of listings
 for most channels, and only lists ones that I can at least partially
