Count me in on that.  As a long-time quiet user, I was always uncomfortable
with the zap2it arrangement.  It never felt like something that would last.  I
had assumed that at some point the plug would be pulled and I'd have to throw
out my mythbox.  I'm happy that the guide data is now legit.

That said, I feel that my cable company *owes* me that data and should offer
feeds directly to paying subscribers.  But since cable companies are scum
sucking government protected monopolies and will never offer it, SD is a pretty
good arrangement.
