The grabber honors the "visible" flag and only pulled schedules for
stationIDs that were marked as visible. The idea was that it's much
easier to tag a station as visible in something like MythWeb instead
of a 700 channel text slog, asking one-by-one "Do you want this one?
What about this? This one seems nice..."
