The official tv_grab_nz has never worked for Myth, no stop times. It has
broken a few times in the couple of months that it has been available.
(Mainly due to the source he was scraping from, he's changed to the
source I am using and it's been fine since)

It's also written in Python instead of Perl.

I have my own version in Perl that works fine and hasn't broken since I
got it running. There are still a couple of things I need to fix in it,
but it does work fine.

I'll second that, particularly if you stay away from the Nth Island <g>
