It's working quite nicely on my machine now; there's probably another weekend of tidying up to do before I let it loose on an unsuspecting forum.

It will be interesting to hear some feedback using real data, rather than anecdotal evidence, on the reliability of Tribune v Digiguide listings.

I wonder if either of them do as well as the Radio Times web site at incorporating late schedule changes? >

If the Radio Times web site significantly beats Digiguide and/or Tribune at late schedule changes, a suggestion. Use a script to compare the "To Do" list with the web site, if a change in the time of a programme to be recorded is noted, automatically update the "To Do" list. It would also be possible to compare the Season Pass / Wish list in case a late programme substitution throws up something that should be added to the "To Do" list.
