(actually, doesn't refuse to parse it - it just throws away programmes it considers to be bad).

three approaches to fixing this:

  • host our own local copy of exclusively for shepherd & components, with lines 1959-1965 commented out (the "foreach" block that does 'warn "element $name not expected here"; next SUBELEMENT;')
  • talk to OzTivo? folk about getting them to generate compliant XMLTV
  • have our OzTivo? grabber pre-process the input to present the fields in a correct order.

Of these three, 2 is best. But in the short term, perhaps implementing 3 will be the easiest path.

The data from Free*EPG is also out of order (according to current So it'd be nice if we could implement a general fix in Shepherd for naughty grabbers. I vote for the third option, if it's not too hard.

implemented the 3rd option - just clean up the xmltv we see from oztivo.
