This is why I wrote "I think anyone would take a Type I error over a
Type II error any day of the week" - I'd rather the scheduler produce
a false positive and record a show, rather than miss it completely. I
guess that as different listings feeds provide differing amounts of
information, it must always error on the side of caution, and cater
for the LCD of information. (I'd imagine adding customisation for
individual grabbers is probably also a bad idea).
