Re: [TV] bleb.org needs to move

I use your xmltv feed for the following two reasons:-
speed of download (average 20 times faster than using radiotimes.com feed with xmltv.exe as your feed is already in the xmltv format)
your feed has bbc radio listings
I think alot of people use your xmltv feed for these reason, especially those on dialup
The popularity of Mythtv and xmltv has increased alot over the past 6 mths, there have been alot of news pieces in computer mags - Computer World mag did a peice over a few months on build in standalone PVR which uses mythtv and xmltv, I seem to remember that bleb got a mention.  So theres alot of newbies out there keeping the defaults

Indeed. That then leaves me wondering if there's any need for the XMLTV
stuff anymore...
