This sounds like a flaw in the grabber code.  It's returning an empty 
XML file and the grabber is not handling it properly.  Could you run 
mythvidexport.py from the commandline using --chanid and --starttime to 
get a traceback.  Alternatively, the current version on the webpage will 
print a traceback to the backend logs when run as a user job.  Also, 
what title and subtitle are you running this against?

Caused by a flaw in the regular expression used to process hostnames not 
handling the dash ('-') in yours.  Since fixed in trunk and 0.24.
