Nobody reads this stuff? The MythTV script "mkiconmap.pl" is
calling "tv_grab_na_icons" which is a script from the XMLTV project:


Running this script directly gives the same error and --debug
is no help either. Zap2It recently changed their look and feel and
apparently your script doesn't work with the new Zap2It.

Contact XMLTV to see if their code has been updated or when it will
be updated to work with the new web pages.
