Now the directory doesn't exists but


does.  Completely empty though.

Does anyone have a contact at the Radio Times to ask what is going on?

I'd be really sorry to lose the RT feed - being a Radio Times
subscriber it is really nice to have the same text and ratings in
MythTV as in the mag.  I also get MythTV to record all the 3 and 4
star films (at low priority) on in the evening which means there is
always something good to watch.  The EIT data doesn't live up to that
