The www.tvgids.nl web site content layout changed so current tv_grab_nl grabber does not parse the web site correctly anymore.

Have updated the tv_grab_nl pearl script, but need someone else to review it.

    tv_grab_nl was removed from the distribution in 2007 because the host site
    was blocking the XMLTV agent string (obviously didn't want a scraper
    hitting it)

    Are you setting the agent string to the standard XMLTV one or changing it?

    Is this the same site _nl grabbed against before? Is there anything in the web site's terms of service that says no scrapers?

    patch seems to work (test of 7 days).

    Grabber was patched with fixes from Teus in August 2009.
