[mythtv-users] Greater Toronto Area and Schedules Direct Digital listings

Okay folks,

I sent in a grumble e-mail to the Schedules Direct folks about the lack of 
digital over the air TV stations listed for my postal code (in mid-town 
Toronto, ON). This granted is a modest issue as I have currently set-up a 
listing source in Youngstown, NY which basicly works okay.

As you can see they have sent a nice response. Question is, how do I word my 
response so that not only does this issue get resolved for me, but every
other Schedules Direct user in the Greater Toronto Area?

Below is my draft response. In drafting my response, I was looking at the 
display on MythTV box and at the Canada Post map pages here:


What additional postal code(s) should I include (or drop)? What additional 
stations should I include?

Okay, here is a list of the local digital stations
that I can get with an attic mounted antenna (I plan
to move the antenna outdoors once the weather gets a
bit warmer which will likely mean a few additional
digital channels, but this makes for a great start :-)

7_2 WNGS
7_3 WCSN
23_1 WNLO-HD
25_1 CBLFT-D
29_1 WUTV-HD
29_2 WUTV-SD
42_1 WNED-HD
42_2 WNED-SD
42_3 WNED-Th
66#0 CKXT-DT

The above channels should be available to almost
anyone with a semi-decent antenna in any Toronto
postal code (any postal code that starts with the
letter "M") and the following communities near
