 This was discussed on the -users list, and Matt Mossholder identified that
 the site is now requiring appropriate referrer headers to work.

 They have apparently chosen to require appropriate referrer headers
 (presumably to provide a (small) impediment to those not accessing the
 data directly via their web site for personal use).

 Someone is going to have to contact lyngsat directly to determine if they
 have alternative approved mechanisms to access their logos via
 programmatic mechanisms, or whether their site is no longer supported for
 that type of access (and MythTV should remove support for them).  Their
 logos, their rules.
