You really should thank Warren Toomey who runs the guide. My grabber
just concatenates the data his system returns. And he has been *very*
prompt in fixing any issues I've found.
Oh, Warren also set up this page today:
I've added that link off my page.

I should re-emphasise that I haven't tested this myself yet! I've
eyeballed the XML, but not fed it into myth (housemates were using the
box :). I suspect there may be some issues with XML quoting of
apostrophes and ampersands - the XML generated is correct, but it isn't
exactly normal to use ' as the quote string instead of '.
Also some of their program descriptions are truncated. It is a problem
in their data, not my grabber. I haven't gone through and fixed their
data myself yet.
