ralphski: Possibly the same reason why EPG collector seems to have stopped working
I would not think so (although not impossible). EPG collector gets it's data from the DVB-S or DVB-T stream same as your Freeview or Sky STB. Haventech scrapes TV web sites for its data.
To the OP hopefully the guy who runs the Haventech site will see your post and have a look. It does go down every so often but he has always got it back up and running before D-day
