As you guys know from the previous post, I've gotten XMLTV working on Windows Perl 5.18.

I also installed a copy of ActiveState's Perl Development kit and built an alpha-exe.

http://xmltv.org/alpha/xmltv_perl5-18.exe

Please check it out and let me know how it works.  Once xmltv-devel has a go at it, I'll let xmltv-users give it a shot.  

If everyone is happy with it, I'll look into purchasing a new PDK license and switch xmltv.exe to it.

Eventually, we'll bump the minimum perl version and can take advantage of newer features/modules.
