That could be very useful.

The best course of action would be to ask on xmltv-users (better still
xmltv-dev) and ask the tv_grab_jp developers for the answers. Mailing
list posts are normally answered quicker and have higher visibility
than the bug tracker.
A grabber's useragent string is usually something like "XMLTV/0.5.50"
- typically if a site suddenly stops blocking connections it means
they don't want them - but they may not know what XMLTV is either and
are blocking out of uncertainty.
