Since you are in the usa you get to live by our copyright laws. I do not 
see any possibility for scraping a website that does not break the law. 
One possibility for free listings would be to buy one of the commercial 
windows packages that includes listings and use it. :) Another to get a 
dvr from your cable provider. They all cost money in one form or 
another. If you like the features of myth as much as we all do, dig into 
the pocketbook and pay the $5 per month for the first 3 months. Most 
likely it will end up costing us $25-30 year once the devs know the 
operating costs and can do some planning.
