Yup isnt working for me either, I'm trying the Ananova one as I type to see if thats ok.

The ananova one is working fine. it does not have much data thou.
The problem with the radio times on is that the grabber, has a bug with getting 2004 dates, should be fixed soon thou.

Ahh I see, looking at the output onscreen it was giving it looked fine until it hit any of the 2004 data.
Will use Ananova for now until it gets fixed.

Seems to be only a problem for dates of 30/12/2003, 31/12/2003 and 1/1/2004...
If you grab with --offset so that it starts on 2/1/2004, or do a grab tomorrow then all seems to be OK...
I used tv_grab_uk just to get data for 1/1/2004, then tv_cat to merge it with the rt data to workaround the problem...
It also appeared on the xmltv developers mailing lists, so hopefully it will be fixed ready for when the problem re-occurs next year!

i've not used radiotimes as its slow and has few channels supported.. whats this tv_cat ... sounds promising... how long does a radiotimes rip take.. hours?! many of them.. if i can cat it with the annanova one that'd be perfect...
where do you get tv_cat from?
