Just a heads up for anyone who has switched to SD.

There are currently no listings for Channel 5 and Channel 5 HD they are 
just showing 'To Be Announced'. SD are aware of the issue 
(http://forums.schedulesdirect.org/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=2812) and are 
working to get it fixed.

For the time being the best you can do is set up a manual recording for 
anything you want to record on CH5/CH5HD.
