Having had a look at Dave's grabber output (data, not log), the
grabber successfully produced data until 2011-06-26 and so it seems
that the grabber itself is working fine - the issue seems to be
somewhere in the automated running of the grabber by the backend.

Have any other UK users running Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick) and XMLTV
0.5.59 encountered problems as described at the start of the thread?


As you successfully ran the grabber from the command line, it is
possible to manually import the data into MythTV via mythfilldatabase
- see the docs and wiki for more information on how to do this.
