[mythtv-users] Rex: a new tv_grab_au script

Um I get the following message when using the script through

Rex 1.2.0
error in conf file: Global symbol "$conf" requires explicit package name
at (eval 15) line 1, <> chunk 1.
Global symbol "$duplicate" requires explicit package name at (eval 15)
line 21, <> chunk 1.

It seems to run fine when I run it by itself.  Am I doing something

Thanks. I'll re-try tonight.

Cool! Though I have to say I'm disappointed because I recently spent
aaaaages writing something which would allow correct movie
classification and you've now made it redundant :)   Great move,
though, pardon the pun!

Actually on a more serious note, is there any reason why the data source
has to go into the XML file? I think this just opens us up to scrutiny
from certain areas which may be unwelcome. I'd like to suggest that the
source at the top of the file is removed or, if it's required to be a
correct DTD, then just put junk in there. What do folks think?
