Hmmm, option 2 sounds interesting (mainly because I'm not sure how I'd
do option 1!) So with this option, if I understand you, I'd still see
two channels on my schedule, but one would have no data prior to the
changeover time, and the other would have no data after it.

It would certainly be better than what I have at the moment anyhow.

Thanks for the input!
