That's another thing to consider :-). For OTA, the data contained in 
the stream is pretty reliable, but for cable I'd imagine they 
probably also include data from Gemstar in some form or other.

My point is that the very presence of a listing (and a channel) is 
predicated upon there being a user who receives the channel and 
leaves the feature to send data to SiliconDust enabled.
