[mythtv-users] What to do about missing cable provider/lineup at

First post. I'm coming along nicely in the assembly and configuration
of my new MythTV box.
I've run into a roadblock that a couple of hours of googling hasn't
really helped clear up for me.
Short description: zap2it doesn't give me a choice for my cable provider
(astound cable in zip code 94598). None of about 20 surrounding zip
codes produced anything useable either.
I've emailed labs at zap2it.com -- hopefully that will resolve it. But I'm
now somewhat worried that this doesn't seem to be a common problem, that
I've come across various comments alluding to zap2it not being very
responsive to lineup problems, and I couldn't get far at all
investigating things at zap2it's site because of apparent web site
problems (most FAQ/forum type links produced database errors).
So I gues I'm asking:
a) Is this problem a common occurence and should I just relax and expect
zap2it to fix it?
b) If so, what's the best way to bring it to zap2it's attention? E-mail
to labs at zap2it.com?
c) If not, what are my alternatives? Googling around on the notion of
custom building a channel lineup from various sources indicates that
this might be do-able, but perhaps a rather large effort.
Hoping for some good news! In any case, happy new year to all.
