I agree with Harald. A separate URL must be embedded for program info, but
I'm wondering if this would setup a conflict between program and channel
info. I don't think it would because the channel info would be part of a
separate program guide. Is that correct? Would this allow channels to pop
promos, etc., onto the screen? If there was a conflict would the show or the
channel info have priority?

best...
