I was finaly able to set up MythTv at home with a PVR-150.

I'm happy, everything works except the TV listings as I don't have a Schedules Direct account yet.

I didn't mind the $20 dollars too much although I find it to be a steep price just for the listings.

What threw me off was the kind of information they request to sign up for the listings. They ask for full Address. THat information is not Optional.

Is anyone using Schedules Direct? I was searching and as far as I can tell it is the only source that can be used with MythTV (Other than screen scraping).

So, is anyone of you using them? What do you think about them?
