MythTV 0.15+ no longer use XMLTV for grabbing listings in North
America. Instead, Myth now has a built-in grabber (using Tribune Media
Service's/Zap2It's DataDirect web service) that pulls more information
more quickly and with less strain on the provider's servers. Therefore,
you don't need XMLTV.
