You will either need a SchedulesDirect subscription (very cheap annual fee) or purchase BeyondTV software one time. This then adds PVR capability to MainLobby.

From what I read, it's actually part of their contract to get the data in the first place, so technically they could lose that contract (and all their data) if they were to provide the data to commercial applications...

Pretty self-righteous for a "non-profit" group that takes money for public information.

That information is not free, they have to pay big publishers for that, then they need the servers to host the data, pay for bandwidth and all...

I set up a schedulesdirect account and am pleased to have TVLobby back. My question is do we continue to use this same command to download listings?
