I have it working on SVN trunk but I've made a few patches.  I am
still working on getting it working 100% reliably.   The last I heard
the developer no longer has a myth box.  :(

It's never caused any harm for me.  The worst case it will fail to:
a) end a sports event recording early
b) won't extend your sports event recording

One way this can mess with WAF is if your game goes into overtime and
gets extended leaving no tuner available for "Desperate Housewives" or
whatever.  I have quite a few tuners though so I've managed to stay
out of the doghouse so far.
