As Robert stated, the service has been intermittent over the last
couple of weeks. This coincided with the addition of about 100 new
channels. Nightly CVS HEAD builds of XMLTV will correctly cache
available listings data - the problem at the moment is that there is
no data available.

I have contacted the Radio Times to report the problem and hope normal
service will resume quickly. The service is usually very reliable.

If you don't already, please subscribe to the xmltv-users lists where
problems like this are reported/updated.
