MythTV Broken :(

Dear Lazyweb,

Disaster just stroke.. my old and trustworthy mythtv box just stopped getting it's program data.

Running mythfilldatabase gives me numerous

WARNING: &channel; is not mapped! Please check the code!
Exception in thread Thread-1:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/", line 442, in __bootstrap
File "/usr/bin/tv_grab_be_tvb", line 482, in run
prog_list = self.grabber.get_programs( html_struct )
File "/usr/bin/tv_grab_be_tvb", line 240, in get_programs
table_struct = html_structure.children[ 4 ]
IndexError: list index out of range

tv_grab_be_tvb fails on me :( I can't be the first one to run into this problem .. or amy the only one around still using tv_grab_be_tvb ? Yes I know my mythtv setup could use some updating (0.19 now) but I have no time for that...

So anyone got a clue what could have caused this ? And why I haven't read about it yet ?
