I have been using your grabber for almost a week now, and it is working
well. I am getting 20 days worth of listings. Thank you!

If I update the mythtv wiki for xmltv are you OK with me adding this
grabber to the documentation?

Since Paul has been using this for some time from the UK, you could
remove references to it being for North America.

One Observation: If I do channel selection on a new setup, the channels
are presented in random order without channel numbers. If I do --days 0
after initializing the database, the channels are presented in channel
number order with channel numbers, names and call signs, which is a lot

To save memory I am creating files with 3 days at a time for reading
into mythfilldatabase. This reduces the resident memory requirement for
mythfilldatabase to 400 MB instead of up to 5 GB.
