OzTiVo already provide a grabber script which pulls the listings for
mtheir database. I think you would be re-inventing the wheel if you
included support for that. Also if they change their database we can
ve confident that they will change their grabber script to support it.

That would be great! FYI, the OzTiVo script is in python. If you'd
like a copy of it to use as a starting point, let me know and I can
send it to you.
