Well, good. I'd gotten the distinct impression that these TitanTV
web schedules were of the "record on X channel at X time" variety,
not ones that Myth could move around at will.
It's possible to correct misconceptions without abusing people, you

Sure it does. You can use EIT, SD, or anything that works with
