Thanks. It appears I can't get OpenGL running, so that makes sense - now I 
have to figure that out but in the meantime can still watch TV.

Since you mentioned it, is there a way I can poke my new SchedulesDirect info 
into the database so I can start getting listings? I want to try to solve my 
OpenGL problem more than I need to watch at the moment.
