As further detail to this, my ultimate goal is to create a data source that
has all the work done for my country so that others can simply download the
completed file once a day from a local server, rather than have to contact
Zap2It.  So ultimately there would be a country specific grabber that
downloaded the channel table/icons/listings from my compiled source.
However that requires some assistance from a friend and I need to get the
basic system operational fist.

Also, the install is KnoppMyth R4V5 (.16 Mythtv).  I don't have source on
the box nor am I a programmer.
