Thanks, thats useful to know that it works ok on 64bit for someone - 
must be something different about the data returned.  I've got a sample 
from Mike, so I'll try to work out what it going wrong.

Ah, I'd not really thought that windows would resize the fonts in 
gadgets like that, but it makes sense.  FWIW I only see the next 3 
upcoming recordings.

Gadgets get to set their own sizes and it's certainly possible to make 
this a config option because I've seen other gadgets do just that.  If I 
get time over the holidays I'll have a look at how difficult it is to 
do, because it's something I'd find quite useful too.
