Has Gary pointed out on this list they are migrating the  JSON service 
from PHP to Python this weekend so expect a few problems for few days 
while they sort everything out.


A slightly unexpected consequence of the switch over is one of the two 
XMLTV grabbers for SD has been broken. The tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite is 
OK but tv_grab_zz_sdjson has a bug. I understand there is a fix being 
worked on but it could be a while before it makes it into the packaged 
versions that most distros use. It may be a simple matter of having to 
apply a temporary patch or change by hand a perl file to get it to work? 
I'm sure the helpful users on this list will come up with a workaround 
so whatch this space:)
