I'll add my solution. I'm using Perl based free home automation program
called Misterhouse. It already has some of tv programes grabbers
implemented. I'm from Slovenia and I found most stripped down html pages
with tv programmes (avant.go channels for Palm) and then quickly parse them
with rather simple perl script and then one could convert to xml format
quite easily.

Some time ago, I mailed to this group about integration of mythtv with some
other background home automation programes (Misterhouse can be your
organizer, email reader, automation controller, it has extensive web server
built in etc... really great program but lacks decent gui for tv-out
viewing ) but if I remember right some weren't delighted with that
