As you say - it is debatable but not much of a contest IMHO.

I find the shorter OTA EPG descriptions useless - especially when looking for 
new programs of interest. The ability to do meaningful searches/recordings on 
cast, genre etc is also a major benefit of the Radiotimes data. Not to 
mention the 14-day v 7-day argument (going on holiday?).

I would like it if all descriptions fit neatly in the OSD - but I'd rather 
increase the OSD size than sacrifice useful information.
