Re: mismatched descriptions

I tried http://schedulesdirect.org/getdata, but don't understand exactly what I was seeing. There was no form to specify lineup or time period. If I see mismatched data for a particular lineup, channel and time, how do I query schedulesdirect manually for the same show?

Upon investigation, I discovered that it was marked as a 'repeat' with an original air date of 01-01-2000. It wasn't a repeat and it's original air date is 10-07-...

Tricks and tips for an easy HDTV-cable switchover?

HDTV frequency versus cable box numbers
