Man, I wish I read this a couple hours ago.  I deleted my existing
lineups and added new SD lineups.  That turns out to be the hard way.
But, it's all working now so I'm happy.  Schedules Direct setup was
easy and painless.  My only advice would be to improve the web
interface, but I'm sure, in time, that will get better.


PS sorry if top quoted.  I'm using my cell and Google isn't showing
the quoted text.
