Seconded. The MSN data is top notch and worth the occasional pain.  
The grabber script is also fairly well-written, although a few more  
sanity checks to better detect failures due to site changes would be  

That said, if IceTV could guarantee this level of quality and reduce  
price just a little, I'd probably switch just to avoid the occasional  
evening perl debugging session and possibility of NineMSN declaring  
war on mythtv :/
