Actually ... I've just been informed by my sporty-mates that it 
was the Cricket, and not 60minutes, than ran over time ... which 
oddly makes more sense.  But the same problems have occurred
in the past with other fashionable events ..  I.e. Ten blew-out and 
shifted Law and Order a couple of times a few months back with 
BigBrother-AU or Idol-AU .. etc ad nausea ..

By the sounds of it we need to supplement the data locally with 
something that arrives Just In Time .. with something "highly
current" ..

RE: DVB cards and disk space .. the recent decline in mobo PCI 
slots and the lack of PCIX DVB cards makes it difficult
(impossible?)  to achieve channel saturation in a single PC case ..
otherwise I'd so be there ..
