Which grabber are you referring to?
a) XMLTV's grabber tv_grab_ch_search
b) MythTV's internal EIT scanner

Sounds like tv_grab_ch_search. That is strange as the nightly tester
reports it as working.
But there appear to be issues with the latest release, I have not
tested it and can't say if it works or not.
The fix might be as simple as updating to the latest nightly. (and
asking for a new release over at xmltv-users to roll out the fix)

To add a new grabber to XMLTV it would have to be written in Perl and
not violate the sites usage policy / terms of service. So if you pull
down the guide via some API for public consumption you are on the safe
But if its a php command line grabber that implements the XMLTV API
you'd have to host/package it yourself as of now.

I think its best to move over to xmltv-users either way.
