I just made the switch to using SchedulesDirect about 15 minutes ago and I
was surprised that it was so simple. (took about 15 minutes to do).  I just
upgraded to SVN 14249 and my mythfilldatabase looks to be populating all the
channel information that was already there.  I, like you, also spent a lot
of time organizing the xmltvid number so that each channel had the correct
info and renamed them all to be easily readable.  Now that Daniel has added
SD to the lineup selection it's extremely simple to move the info from
Zap2It.  Thanks Daniel!

Over the next few days I'll keep my eyes on it and make sure that all the
info is still populating correctly, if all is good by this weekend then I'll
kiss my first $15 away for the initial 3 month subscription.  So far, the
glass is half full!
