MythWeb settings under TV.

Note, though, that the Timeslot size, Number of timeslots, and Group 
timeslots every values have constraints on them.  If you use wrong 
values, it won't do what you want--i.e. it will show a bunch of empty 
boxes (without any title/description) or it will be extremely slow.  
Feel free to experiment or read the code to find the constraints.
