I believe the atrpms.net is back up now.  Good luck with your update!

Excellent.  Exactly what I needed.  I'd seen that Schedules Direct had taken
over but was uncertain as to how to make the changes.  I understand I need
to upgrade and then go into the setup and select Schedules Direct on the
pull down.  

Since my post, I've also seen many posts indicating that the update server
is down.  I guess I'll have to wait, but at least I know the proper path.  

I'll check my versions but I'm certain I need an upgrade to get the
Schedules Direct option.  

Thank you very much.

For one, just check the archives and you will see that 
schedulesdirect.org took over where zap2it labs left off.  You need the 
0.20.2 version of mythtv in order to use schedulesdirect, though.  So, 
yes, you will want to make sure you are relatively current with your 
RPMS if you followed that guide.

In another thread on the list over the past day, there has been some 
discussion about the ATrpms site being down.  I believe it is still 
down, which is causing your "time out" error.  The only alternative is 
to update the yum configuration to point at one of the few ATrpms mirrors.

To see what version you are running, run
mythbackend --version
mythfrontend --version
