Let me be the first to say, "Seeya, Braindead." No one is forcing you  
to use the schedulesdirect listings. It's just a convenient way to  
get listings without any work on the part of end users. Nothing is  
stopping you from getting your own scheduling information in whatever  
way and using it with MythTV.
