Right.  I was just trying to reinforce the idea that there are really
only 2 guide data sources, TMS and Gemstar, by specifying the true
source of data for each of the listings people have been comparing
throughout the various messages in the thread (not just yours).  In
other words, there's no use comparing SD with Z2L because they're the
same data.
