Yeah, I like suffering.
I wanted to get myself knowledgeable in python and wrote this xmltv
program in python.

I will look into an xml library.

I have just run my program on a live stream (which contains pretty
much the same data as the previous one, but starting a day later and
finishing a day later too), and when I run mythfilldatabase it gives
me the error
