When I renewed my subscription to zap2it and filled out the survey, I
remember it asking me something about the time I would like to download
channel information so that there servers would not be killed by everybody
downloading at the same time. Could this have something to do with that?

I just noticed the same problem tonight.  I noticed there was nothing
scheduled for Friday and when I looked at the listings there were a
large number of NO DATA entries.

zap2it changed since I have not modified anything on my mythtv system
for some time.

A quick scan through the listings shows many NO DATA gaps.  I suspect
this has resulted in missed recordings.  

Is this a temporary problem with zap2it or does this require a patch on
