    This is an awesomely useful piece of software and the author still cares! Amongst other goodness, the latest update works around up stupid tv3 listings which are using the same crids for tv3 and tv3 plus one. Found one bug. Start/End time are out by one hour on the two days of the year when daylight savings starts or finishes. Corrected tiny bug in the start/end time calculations.
