It could be either. The listings on SD's site work by receiving data
from the HDHR's of individual users. The data and screen shots are sent
during periods of inactivity on the HDHR.
Because of this, the listings are dependent upon someone in your area
having a HDHR hooked to the same provider as you. If they aren't using
the exact same provider, or if they subscribe to different channels, the
listing will be out of whack. If they stop using the HDHR, the listings
won't get updated.
