Yes, it is better because the information is (or was at one time
anyway) more comprehensive on the NineMSN one. It also had some more
friendly config options in the perl script itself. Best place to
download it from is the gossamer archives. If you can't get one let me
know and I'll send you mine.

Another alternative is to access the data from OzTiVo. I think I have
a perl script at home which I downloaded and configured from their web
site which extracts the data from their program database. The plus
sides of this are that this is sanctioned and the data is not
copyrighted as it's re-entered from the public domain (as I understand
it). The downside is that  the data's not quite as good as NineMSN,
but a lot of work seems to be being done to improve it; also, when I
tried using it, I found I wasn't able to get 7 full days in advance
which is the main reason I went back to NineMSN, but I keep the script
in case I need it as a backup solution.
