Default What's happened with Ananova?

I had a look at http://www.ananova.com/tv/ (which is used by XMLTV, and
hence by the Linux PVRs) and it is saying that they are no longer doing
TV listings. What's with this? Has anyone got another source of UK TV
listings in XML format?

Have you tried the XMLTV grabber that gets data from the BBC Radio
Times site? (tv_grab_uk_rt)

Meanwhile XMLTV folks are experimenting with another source.

No, the Radio Times only has a few channels (45, going by the channel
list in grab/uk_rt). I thought of that but the RT site is deficient in
channel data.

Ah, where did you find that? I can't find even an acknowledgement that
there is a problem on the XMLTV site.

From the sourceforge hosted mailing lists for XMLTV (viewable on-line
at http://sourceforge.net/mail/?group_id=39046
However, looks like a problem at SourceForge because their on-line
listings are not up to date.
We have been discussing it in xmltv-devel
