As we were transitioning away from the endless poor-service lying-phone-rep overpriced DVR BS from Cox, at one point I made a list of all the HD channels this 7400 could tune via the basic cable signal, and a list of all the analog channels our ReplayTV could tune, and a list of all the analog & HD channels the TV could tune.
And as we were juggling what shows to record on which DVR while deciding whether or not to keep the 7400, we made a list, Sunday thru Saturday, of all the recurring shows we like to record and/or watch, so that no matter which devices we ended up with, we could quickly load all the recurring stuff aboard the appropriate DVR's.

Like JoeKustra (and surely others) have found, turns out that with TitanTV
and a few text file lists of channels and favorite shows, PPG's aren't as important toward achieving BS-Free TV Nirvana as we first thought.
Convenient yes, but essential, no.

14 cents a day -- affordable for quick foxes and even lazy brown dogs.
