As long as the patch that I got committed to offset listings by a time  
delay will continue to work, then I'm still happy.  The only thing is  
that it's setup to work only with DataDirect listings, so I'm not  
looking forward to most of my channels being off by three hours again.

I'm willing to make a new patch if necessary once SD takes over, but  
this is something that Zap2It just absolutely refused to fix for me.   
I'd love it if SD could ue their clout to get it fixed.
