This looks interesting and I've been seeing if I can use it for
Australian movie times. It seems to return XML OK if I run it from the
command line but when I run it from MythTV it gives me errors:

use of unitialized value in hash element at line 73.

Any ideas why it would work from the command line but not mythfrontend?
