Hello,
I get the following error message when I'm trying to configure tv_grab_za using the command "xmltv tv_grab_za --configure":

Timezone is +0100
using config filename ./.xmltv/tv_grab_za.conf
Initialising cookies: ##################################################
Getting list of channels from DSTV site: no channels could be found at /PerlApp/
grab/za/tv_grab_za line 896.

I noticed that on the nightly status page it seems that the grabber it's working. But not for me :(. I use the version 0.5.59.
Hope you can help me. Thank you!

    DSTV have redesigned their website with regard to the available channels. Someone has to write a function to collect the list of channels (name, id number, logo) from the new page.
    Until that happens you can take the test configuration from http://xmltv.cvs.sourceforge.net/viewvc/xmltv/xmltv/grab/za/test.conf and adjust it to your needs.

    I'm the maintainer for _za. My apologies for not noticing that it's broken. I also check the nightly status regularly and thought everything was ok. I'll fix the grabber, but it's going to take a while.

    Grabber has since been rewritten because of website changes. Please use version 1.44 or newer (in XMLTV 0.5.64).
