>                            'ABC copy 2'  => 'rhubarb.abc.gov.au' },
>      'eastern.sbs.com.au' => { 'SBS HD' => 'hd.eastern.sbs.com.au' }

Michael - thanks on behalf of Aussie MythTV users for this script and
for updating it to cope with the recent changes. I've been using your
script for a while and I think it's the best one of the different ones
going around.

Not sure if you saw the discussion last week of getting one of the
Aussie grabbers submitted to be part of the XMLTV package, but there
was a general feeling that your's would be the best to submit. Would
you have an issue with that?
