I'm trying to get tvheadend running on a raspberry pi. I'm still trying to convince myself that the learning experience is worth it and I don't regret ditching the Windows box.

The EPG is proving frustrating. From what I gather, this isn't unique.

I've read up on the various options, and hope to go with the tv_grab_nz-py script one (which I at least more or less understand the principle, if not anything detailed about how the code works). Running the configuration, the script seems to crash. I got my version from

@tarlen has mentioned here (great intro by the way) that he was getting an error due to the accented "a" in "Maori TV" and that he was able to edit the script to correct this. His dropbox link isn't working any more, and I can't see anything obvious in the script to edit out.

Any advice?
