Default WinTV Scheduler

I have a Hauppauge WinTV PRV-250 (TV Tuner card), and frankly.... the scheduler that came with it sucks. it's clunky and awkward, all text based and when two schedules conflict it doesn't tell you what's conflicting just that its conflicting with something else. Setting up the schedules is a chore too even if you picked tomorrow out of the day column for you schedule, the start date which is today (by default) you can't set a time before what ever the current time is, so you have to change the start date, change the end date cause now that's set to yesterday (by default), and it just ……. bad.

SO the question I pose…. anybody use anything else that’s any better? I’m hopping for something with a GUI that’ll layout my schedule in boxes so I can see what’s being recorded and when…. I’m thinking of TVGuide.com’s layout. I’ve included pictures

this is loosely what I see in my head when I'm thinking about what I'd like my scheduler to look like
