Over the last month I've been on a personal quest to try and get the
history and many faces of this script sorted out. It's a long and twisty
journey, and some of the passages aren't what you thought they were. Of
course, part of my plan here was to try and get the most up-to-date version
of the script possible, and to try and get it to actually load up
configuration information from the parameters mythfilldatabase passes on
the command line. Both of these are now more or less true.
The logical way (at least to me) to go from here is to share these

machine and you can download the latest editions of the 0.6 and 0.7
versions using the command:
svn checkout svn://tangram.dnsalias.net/tv_grab_au_0.?
(Sorry, I haven't used the standard trunk/branches/tags system - partly
because it seemed a bit baroque for what we're dealing with and partly
because I forgot.)
If you need to check things in, please let me know a preferred username and
password for Subversion. If you are a Subversion guru and have I've done
something boneheaded, please let me know.
Long story short: 0.6 uses the d1.com.au information, which is free for
non-commercial use because the d1.com.au developers wanted to 'give back'
to the OS community for their use of MythTV, and 0.7 uses the ninemsn
information because it includes descriptions and because the d1.com.au info
wasn't complete at time of writing (from what I've been told). The config
file for the current version of 0.7 is a simple text <keyword> = <value>
file, with keywords being location and source, and its named
