The official XMLTV project only accepts perl
grabbers (for various reasons), but there are
other XMLTV compliant grabbers not part of
the official project floating around which have
been known to be written in languages other
than perl (at least a few are referenced on
the XMLTV project wiki as related projects).

MythTV is agnostic as to the language of the
grabber, as long as the output is compliant
to the XMLTV spec (there are even direct
sources of XMLTV compliant files available
from some providers/sources, making the
"grabber", essentially, a wget/curl download).
